Welcome to Tamar & Tavy Gig Club! We are a small, friendly gig rowing club on the banks of the beautiful Tamar River and we are always keen to welcome new members.

Gig rowing is a “team sport” and it’s hard not to make new friends. It is also a sport with something for everyone, so whether you are looking for a new way to keep fit, the excitement of racing in a competitive crew or just to enjoy the scenery and wildlife bimbling about on the river, our Club will have a rowing session to suit you and your family.

Our members come from all walks of life but we all have at least one thing in common- we love rowing gigs!

River Tamar

New members enjoy three free taster sessions and we run periodic Learn to Row courses that will teach you everything you need to know, so come along and give gig rowing a try.

Where to find us

You will find us on the idyllic Devon banks of the River Tamar, at Weir Quay.
