Newquay Gig Row – Children’s Hospice South West

Newquay Rowing Club is looking for teams to take part in its sponsored gig row in Newquay harbour on Sunday 21 July supporting Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

The event offers groups of friends, colleagues, sports teams, or family to give gig rowing a go in this friendly sponsored charity event.  To take part teams are required to supply three novice rowers and the other three rowers and the coxswain in your gig will be supplied by Newquay Rowing Club.


It is the perfect event for people to give gig rowing a go with a healthy bit of competition against other novice teams from the local community. Don’t be put off if you have never stepped into a gig before – this is your opportunity, you will be supported by experienced rowers and we are sure you will enjoy it!

Teams are asked to meet at the harbour and assist in getting the gigs into the water at 1 pm and the competition will start at 2 pm. There will be a presentation in the clubhouse after which everyone is welcome to attend. If you have more than three people interested in taking part, you can enter up to two teams into the competition. There is a suggested sponsorship target of £100 for each crew taking part.

Anyone interested in taking part should contact Alice Merrett at CHSW by emailing or calling 01726 871800
