The Lewes Pilot Gig Club, you see, isn't just about rowing; it's a microcosm of life's unexpected twists and turns, a place where you're as likely to learn about the resilience of the human spirit as you are about the proper technique for a stroke. Here, amidst the gentle lapping of the waves and the sturdy feel of wood beneath your palms, you'll find a sense of community that's as comforting as a well-worn dressing gown.

We row from:


Newhaven Marina, Fort Road, Newhaven, BN9 9BY

We warm up and grab our life jackets from here: What3words-panicking.sprinkle.occupations



Since 2018, Lewes Pilot Gig Club has been introducing the time-honored exhilaration of gig rowing to Lewes.


It involves a hearty crew—six rowers and a coxswain—coordinating their efforts to propel a 32-foot elm vessel through the aquatic realms of seas and rivers.

Our voyages launch from Newhaven harbour, undeterred by the seasonal whims of Earth's climate, offering a berth for every level of experience, from the uninitiated to the nearly nautical.


In a spirit of nautical goodwill, we extend three free trial rows to anyone curious enough to dip an oar in the water.
