World Pilot Gig Championships
1st - 3rd May 2020
Following UK Government guidance, WPGC2020 is cancelled. It cannot be rescheduled for this year.
The Isles of Scilly is a small community with a higher than UK average of elderly (and, therefore, vulnerable) people. We have an infrastructure which copes with day-to-day occurrences but would be overwhelmed by the impact of the coronavirus infection and that would have serious consequences.
We must do what we can to protect ourselves and delay the spread.
Registration fees will be refunded - please bear with us while we sort that out.
If and when the situation returns to normal, the next World Pilot Gig Championships will take place from the 30th April to the 2nd May 2021 - the first May Bank Holliday weekend.
There will also be more information on WPGC2021 when the situation becomes clearer.
There is disappointment all round but in the light of the current crisis, this is the right decision.
