Mevagissey Rowing Club will be 30 years old in 2017 and is among one of the oldest gig clubs in Cornwall.


We row from Portmellon, a short way from Mevagissey, where we have three beautiful wooden gigs and a plastic training gig. We welcome new rowers of all ages and abilities, and whether you want to compete in races or just fancy keeping fit and enjoy being on the water, there is always a space for you.


We take part in races around Cornwall and the South West throughout the summer including the World Pilot Gig Championships on the Isles of Scilly. Winter training is on Sunday mornings, moving to evenings during the week once Spring arrives.


We are a busy and friendly club, so do keep in touch with what we are up to via social media, or come and say hello at Portmellon, we'd love to see you!

Donation to MAC

Our recent sponsored 24 hour row was so successful we were able to make a £500 donation to Mevagissey Activity Centre - a vital resource to the club and village. Tahnks to everyone who supported!

Scillies 2016

The World Pilot Gig Championships took place on the Isles of Scilly over May Day bank holiday weekend. Our new gig, Elowen had her maiden races, alongside Lannvorek. All crews did brilliantly!

Our rowers range from Juniors (under 16) right through to rather more senior Super Vets. If you've always fancied a go at gig rowing, it's never too soon or too late! Just get in touch.
