In the past Marconi Sailing Club have had the use of a rowing gig for many major events including open days and Cadet Week. With this going down so well and with a view of increasing on the water participation, Marconi have been successful in getting Sport England grant funding to purchase our own rowing gig.
Based on a traditional 19th Century design The East Coast rowing gig provides people of all ages and abilities with an opportunity to get on the water.
Built by the Pioneer Sailing Trust in Brightlingsea our rowing gig is expected to hit the waters of The River Blackwater at the end of August or early September.
