Lundy Gig Row

Date to be announced - July 2011.    West Country pilot gigs were designed to carry pilots out to ships.  The first one alongside won the pilotage job, so speed was critical. The row from Clovelly to Lundy and back is a true test of endurance over 32 miles of sea - it can take up to four hours, depending upon the weather and tides.  So come along and support the brave crews!
