Last week the Cornish Pilot Gig Association took over the running of the popular website www.GigRower.co.uk
GigRower we set up by rower Toby Budd eight years ago and is now the main online resource for the traditional sport of pilot gig rowing and racing.
Shane Sullivan, Chairman of the CPGA, said: ”I always thought GigRower would be better inside the CPGA, rather than outside it. I met Toby and we discussed our ideas for the future of the sport and Toby agreed to sell his website to the CPGA for £1”
He added “It’s a great to have GigRower onboard as it gives us a great tool for communicating with rowers and stakeholders as well as increasing the profile of the sport.”
