Newquay Rowing Club are holding a birthday party for Newquay’s oldest gig is called “Newquay” and is red and white.
More than 100 people, including club rowers past and present, attended the birthday bash to celebrate the gig’s history over a slice of cake and a glass of bubbly at Newquay Harbour.
Pilot Gigs played an important part of life in Newquay – and across Cornwall – when the boats would row out to guide visiting ships safely into the Harbour.
In Newquay, gig rowing is a popular sport, with several teams and boats working out of Newquay Rowing Club premises on the Harbour. October 2012.
