Chairman's Thank you to all Rowers 2016
Heartiest congratulations to Amazon from Caradon Gig Club and Blackrock from Falmouth Gig Club upon winning the 2016 World Pilot Gigs Championships in the ladies and men’s races respectively. Similar congratulations are also due to Spy for winning the ladies veterans and Amazon for winning the men’s veterans races, and to Helford for winning the ladies super vets and Governor for winning the men’s super vets. None of these results would have happened without considerable application to training for a long period and to outstanding determination and effort during the actual races.
I wish to thank all of you that took part in the 2016 World Pilot Gig Championships. Each year, thanks to all your efforts, the Championships grows in numbers and goes from strength to strength in outstanding achievements over the weekend. My committee will have a debriefing meeting and then begin planning the 2017 event. I have received two emails with suggestions for improvements that will go before the committee. We are always happy to receive your viewpoints and where practicable will be pleased to incorporate changes to enhance the experience of all rowers during the Championships.
Once more my thanks to you all for making the 2016 World Pilot Gig’s Championships such a success. Please do not hesitate to email me with suggestions.
Chairman World Pilot Gigs Championships Committee
