Our Cornish Pilot Gigs are powered by six hand made traditional oars.  The Club has worked hard to establish and maintain a fleet of six gigs but is now, quite literally, ‘up a creek without a paddle!’ We have started a Crowdfunder project that will enable us to buy a new set of oars and also help us maintain other oars that are in great need of restoration.   Crowdfunder uses the power of the crowd to help community projects by collecting money from members of the public and businesses through pledges, large and small as every little helps.   The Crowdfunder project will enable the Club to buy a new set of oars and make full use of the boats to the benefit of existing members, future rowers and the local community.  The oars will be made by specialist craftsman using traditional materials and skills.  The oars will be used daily for years to come. The target is £3000. So far we have raised over £1000, but need your help to raise the remainder.  Please click on the link below to find out more about our project. Please support our Paddle-Power project, dig deep and donate -even £5 will help us reach our target!
