Our Youth Section has now increased from 6/8 regular rowers to over 30, with two to three boats going out every Sunday, weather permitting. With the expansion of interest and youth membership we intend to extend youth rowing to evenings when the clocks change, as well as weekend sessions. We will attend some of the many Regattas on offer as well as three specific youth events: under 14's in Hayle; under 16's in Newquay and at our own Lyme Regis Gig Club Regatta held each year in August.

The Gig Club has commissioned Gail McGarva to build a Cornish sea Skiff which is smaller than a Gig and will mean that children will be able to start rowing at an earlier age. Work will commence at the end of March and we will be able to launch her late summer.
For any Club rower, regardless of age, wishing to experience the thrill of a race we hold intraclub racing once a month which is open to all rowers. Intraclub racing is a fun event where boats of mixed ability rowers race over a short distance. Rowers compete in a league with prizes awarded at the end of the season to the rower who amasses the most points. This event has proven hugely popular with our membership and is a great way to meet and mix with all club members.
Please contact the Club for further details.
