Do I need to be fit?
Rowing is a physically demanding activity and it is important that you have a good level of physical fitness before starting to row. However, you do not need to be an elite athlete to enjoy rowing. Everyone is welcome at London Cornish Pilot Gig Club, regardless of their level of fitness.

Do I need any special equipment?
No,  all you need is comfortable clothes for exercise.  We do however have some fabulous club kit that you may want to view if you become a member. 

Everything else including oars and buoyancy aids and of course, a boat are provided.

Throughout the year we have a number of social events that are important not just as fundraisers to support the club, but to bring members together and to have fun.
All members are encouraged to support these events.

Do I need previous experience?No. Our 'Learn to Row' sessions  are ideal for beginners and rowers who have been off the water for a while. As rowing gigs is different from sliding seat rowing, you will still be invited to complete the Learn to Row sessions if you have rowed in sliding seat boats.

Can I rent the Boat House?
The Richmond Boat house may be available to members for renting, subject to Committee approval.  Please contact  xxxx for further details. 

We have a buddy system to help support new members.  Our membership secretary will set you up when you start your subscription.
