Affiliate Clubs

Becoming an affiliate club is a good way to join our community and get involved.

Our affiliate clubs have successfully completed the membership application process but have yet to build or acquire their own Cornish Pilot Gig. This means that they have access to the same support and resources as full member clubs but if they want to compete in a Cornish Pilot Gig race they have to borrow a boat from another club.

Once they have become affiliate members, clubs have two years to lay the keel on their boat or acquire an existing registered Cornish Pilot Gig before they need to resubmit their membership application.

Becoming an affiliate member can help clubs to rally their membership and successfully fundraise for their first Cornish Pilot Gig.
