Great Big Cornish Gig Project

Gig Info

You may be aware that the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth is home to the Great Big Cornish Gig Project.

The build project involves Wounded, Injured and Sick (WIS) military Veterans and Serving personnel working with our team of expert boat builders led by Andrew Nancarrow.
In April 2016, the Gig will be rowed from Falmouth to the Isles of Scilly in time for the 2016 WPGC where it will be raced throughout the weekend by a Help for Heroes crew.

We are delighted to announce that planning for this EPIC ROW has begun and we are hoping the Gig Rowing community will turn out in force to celebrate the start of the journey in Falmouth on SATURDAY 2nd APRIL 2016.

More Epic Row details will be confirmed in the New Year, but in the meantime, please let your Club members know about this great project, and the date for the start of the Epic Row.
