Newquay Rowing Club
Newquay Rowing Club is where modern Cornish Pilot Gig racing started and it is still home to the Treffry, a boat built in 1838 and used as a standard design for all new gigs. Gigs were originally used to take the pilot out to the sailing ships. They were designed to be fast on Cornish waters because the gig reached the ship first received the money for the job. The fifteen strong Newquay Rowing Club Singers desire for a singing session after a good session out on the oars.
