Gig Rowing

The club were warmly welcomed to Bude Pilot Gig Club last Thursday to enjoy an evening of gig rowing at Tamar Lakes. After being given a brief introduction into the history of the sport and production of the gigs, the Young Farmers were able to have a go! Launceston YFC was divided into groups of 6, and under the watch of the enthusiastic members of the Gig Club the Young Farmers were able to experience the sport. A gradual row to the end of the lake turned rather more competitive on the way back when the teams raced towards the finish line! We would like to thank Bude Pilot Gig Club for giving Launceston YFC a fascinating insight into this exciting sport.
