The gig oar range
Passionate about rowing? Show it!
Pilot gigs were hard working boats in the South West and Scilly Isles. They carried pilots out to incoming vessels to help them navigate through the rocks and safely to harbour - gigs competed to get their pilot out to the boat first. They also served other purposes along the English coast such as smuggling, salvage and lifesaving commonly rowed by a crew of six. Today, gig races are held as sporting events with a calendar of regular fixtures during the year, of particular note the World Pilot Gig Championships held in the Isles of Scilly every year.
All oars measure 45mm in length.
