We are a friendly, enthusiastic gig rowing club based in a beautiful boathouse near Kiln Quay at the end of Trefusis Road, Flushing. We cater for people of all ages and abilities from learners to competitive race crews.
Our renowned official Learn to Row course is currently unavailable but we will consider beginners and try to integrate them in to appropriate crews to teach the basics and progress to intermediate and advanced levels accordingly. Many of our gig rowers learned this way and although the official course was superb it’s absence should not deter you from giving it a go!
We have, like many clubs, endured a difficult time during the pandemic over the last two years but an influx of new members in 2021 mixed with experienced and existing rowers has revitalised the club. We own 6 beautiful Cornish Pilot gigs four of which are a traditional wooden construction. We currently see a number of crews taking to the water during the week and at the weekends. These consist of a mixture of recreational and race orientated crews of various levels. We offer a warm welcome for anyone who simply wants to have a go with us or some keen crew mates for anyone with race experience.
Gigs are launched off Flushing beach after a short trolley ride from the boathouse down to the sands with multiple options such as the sheltered waters of the inner harbour up to Penryn, the main harbour and Carrick Roads as well as Falmouth Bay beyond providing some outstanding opportunities to row our boats and enjoy the amazing surroundings. The location is simply second to none!
