King Harry's Cornwall has sponsored 'Flushing & Mylor Pilot Gig Club Mens A Team' who have just come 20th in the Isles of Scilly World Gig Championships.

The team which was selected in the early part of the year has been training 6 days a week over the winter for the world championships which took place this weekend on the Isles of Scilly.

Gigs are 32 foot traditional wooden working boats, some of which are over 100 years old, with six single-oar rowing positions and a cox.  The Mens A team is made up from Jeremy Stonehouse, Neil Rogers, Andy Blake, Toby Budd (who works for King Harry's Cornwall), Darren Hitchman, Paul Dale & Danny Duncan.
