Caradon Gig Club Adult Learn to Row 2020

During the summer season of 2020 Caradon Gig Club will be offering adult learn to row sessions for those with an interest in taking up the popular sport of Cornish Pilot Gig Racing.


Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, all rowing is currently suspended. If we're able to run a learn to row course this year this page will be updated with the details and all those who've applied for the courses below will be contacted first.

Course dates, timings and cost

Our Learn to Row courses this year will consist of two four week blocks the first starting 11th May 2020 and the second 8th June 2020. The sessions will run on each Monday evening from 5.45pm to 6.45 pm, weather permitting.

The cost of the Learn to Row 2020 course will be a non-refundable £20 per person payable in advance to secure the place. Places will be filled on a first come first served basis. A waiting list will be created if there is a surplus of interest.

A novice race night and BBQ will be held on Monday 3rd July for all participants of the Learn to Row 2020. We hope this will be a fun night of racing and competition and we'd love you to bring your family and friends to cheer you along.

If you are interested in the Learn to Row 2020 courses, please complete the Learn to Row 2020 expression of interest form here. We will let you know if your application has been successful and how to pay your fee by 30 March 2020.

After the course…

After attending the course for the full four weeks you will be given the option to join the club as a full member for the remainder of the season. Membership will be charged pro-rata for the remainder of the year (3 July 2020 to 28 Feb 2021) and will include compulsory membership of Saltash Sailing Club.

As a club member you will have the chance to row each week until the end of the race season in September and take part in the Tamar Winter League, a local league for novice and non-elite rowers. You will also have access to circuit training sessions, the club ergo rowing machines, the members page of our website, which includes the club training program, and our members only face-book page.
