The World Pilot Gig Championship 2019 is all wrapped up and done for another year. We would like to thank everyone for coming out this year to celebrate 30 years of rowing! And we would like to congratulate all the winning crews over the weekend.
To see the results from the weekend please see HERE.
The participation in the 2020 WPGC is based upon the 2019 results. We anticipate that a few clubs will not be accepting the invitation(s) which will enable us to use more wild card invitations. If you have already received one or more invitations to the 2020 WPGC, we need to know what you intend to do. We also want to hear from clubs which have not yet received named invitations (this applies to international and private clubs). At this stage, we do not need to know the names of the gigs you will bring - just the number which, obviously, cannot exceed the number of invitations. Please refer to the 2020 rules.
Please email our secretary, Steve Ryman, email@example.com, before the 1st July stating whether or not you intend to accept the invitation(s). Please do not use Facebook or other social media to do this. Emails only.
Failure to do this may invalidate your invitation.
The WPGC is traditionally held on the early May Bank holiday weekend. However, the UK Government has moved this to the following Friday for 2020. As most crews have already made accommodation arrangements for 2020, the champs will still be held as originally planned from Friday the 1st to Sunday the 3rd of May.
