WELCOME TO PORLOCK WEIR GIG CLUB

Pilot Gig rowing on the Exmoor coast

ABOUT US

Porlock Weir Pilot Gig Club was founded in 2018 by Ben Allerton who recognised the growing need for the sport on Exmoor, in this fast growing traditional sport.


After founding the club a training gig was kindly borrowed from Boscastle Pilot Gig Club (rival) to enable potential new members to get a taste of the sport and begin on water training.
This created a large amount of interest and within 12 months the club had over 40 members, this number is still growing.

Porlock Weir is situated on the West Somerset coast. It lies about 1.5 miles west of the village of Porlock.
