Description

The Cornish gig. One of the first shore based lifeboats with recorded rescues going back to the 17th century. Originally built to take pilots out to incoming vessels in the Atlantic. The stronger and faster the crew who could save stricken boats, the better the pay. This is where gig racing is thought to stem from. Today, there are hundreds of gigs, across the world, based on the “Treffry”, built in 1838 and still used by Newquay rowing club. Many of us are familiar with the fierce competition between rowing clubs, to see which crew will be victorious. Here at MudCrew would like to present a twist to this competition. We are sure this is what you have come to expect from us! So, for our latest venture, lets us introduce to you: Man v Gig!
