With just over 6 weeks to go before this years World Pilot Gig Championships start, we thought it would be a great time to release this years official logo.
The design was hand drawn by a well renowned local gig rower. Here’s what he had to say about the inspiration behind it…
‘I’ve been going to the championships from the very beginning, with my parents rowing at first, then me.
The weekend has such an intense feel, the travelling, meeting friends you haven’t seen all winter, the buzz of so many like minded people on an island for the weekend!
Although beautiful, the Scillies have treacherous waters to row in, rocks, wind, tides and swell!!
This illustration is my way to sum up the energy involved with this very special gig rowing occasion’.
We think this sums up the event and the weekend perfectly – we hope you feel the same way.
We will be running the online shop like we did last year, so those of you that would like to pre-order your kit to take it out with you can do so. This will be live from Monday 26th March and will close on Monday 16th April.
We hope you like the logo and all the effort that has gone into it and we look forward to seeing you compete in our rowing kit and enjoying yourselves in the WPGC 2018 merchandise.
