World Pilot Gig Championships - Isles of Scilly
The organisers have sadly decided to cancel the 2020 championships due to fears of Coronavirus.
The Isles of Scilly hosts the World Pilot Gig Championships every year where crews compete for the title of World Champions. A colourful, energetic and very friendly event. Accommodation during the championships is impossible to get unless booked well in advance!
The Isles of Scilly are a group of islands situated 28 miles South West of Land's End in Cornwall. There are 5 inhabited islands: St. Mary's, Tresco, Bryher, St. Martins and St. Agnes. Warmed by the gulf stream and populated by a friendly community of just over 2000 islanders, sub-tropical Scilly has a tranquillity and a quality of life long lost to less isolated places.
