Welcome to Bridport Gig ClubRowing on the Jurassic Coast
Formed in 2007, Bridport Gig Rowing Club offers its members rowing on the stunning Jurassic coast from West Bay. We have over 150 members from the age of 11 upwards, who regularly train and race in our 5 traditional Cornish pilot gigs: Brydian, Dagger, Blaez, Buckydoo and Bathsheba.
We have membership options for all ages and for both those new to the sport and experienced rowers. We also run a comprehensive learn to row program.
What a storm of activity! Passion and technique combined to create something memorable. Bridport BGRC definitely did ‘Burn Water.’
27 BGRC squad members took part. Between them competing in a total of nine races. The annual Rame Gig Club Regatta on the Rame Peninsula, with racing off Cawsand Beach was held on 13 July. The Regatta is a popular one; well attended by clubs across the Southwest. This year 24 gig clubs took part, including one from Kent.
Safety Alert - Avoiding and Treating Heat Exhaustion - July 2022 The recent hot weather has also been a general concern and this is reflected in this month's report from the HRSA for British Rowing. Please read the information and follow the advice.
For some BGRC members this was their first experience of racing at a regatta; thank you for your efforts, we hope you are hooked! To be able to compete on home waters is special. Not only to row in the place we love, supported by so many other members of the club, but also to have the opportunity to explain our sport to visiting members of the public; all of whom curious to understand what was happening on the other side of the harbour wall.
The CPGA has now formally asked clubs to look at, and take into account, the NHS advice on this matter. It is extremely important for all those taking part, and those attending, to read the NHS advice, please click on the link below. Please ensure that you arrive well...
