Porlock Weir’s New Gig Rowing Club Gets A Surprise

Porlock Weir has launched Exmoor’s first gig-rowing club.

The sport is very popular in Cornwall and Devon and there are major annual rowing competitions in Newquay and Scilly. These events attract dozens of clubs from as far away as Pembrokeshire and Weymouth.

ExmoorRadio.com’s Keri Jones reports from outside The Ship Inn, where the Appledore rowers surprised members of the new West Somerset club. They arrived with a second gig boat in tow, for Porlock Weir rowers to borrow.
