World Pilot Gig Championships - Isles of Scilly
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.
