Gig rowing win

The River Fowey Gig Club U16 team clinched a fantastic win over the weekend of 15th & 16th June at the Caradon Gig Club championships in Saltash from an original lineup of eight crews.

The whole team are Fowey Community College Year 10 and Year 11 students, coached by Jeremy Crapp, and we’re delighted to hear about their success. The team have been training hard all season and the work has now paid off with some high placings in recent months and now a big win.

Thank you to @FoweyGigClub for the photo and regular tweet updates. Anyone interested in taking up gig rowing should get in touch with your local club. There are clubs at Looe and Charlestown too and all are on Twitter.
