Yarmouth Gig Rowing club is based at Yarmouth harbour, on the north western coastline of the Isle of Wight.


Using traditional ‘fixed Seat’ boats such as Gigs and Galleys, coastal rowing is a community sport open to all ages and abilities. Both types of boat rowed by the club are over 30 ft long and can seat either 4 or 6 crew, plus cox and passenger.


Working in partnership with the West Wight Sports and Community Centre, members are guided towards fitness and skill levels that allow them to enjoy rowing for competition, fitness and all year round fun.


Training rows regularly take place on Saturday and Sunday mornings and during the summer months the club make the most of the light evenings with a mid week session (Wednesday and/or Thursday subject to availability)


We are constantly looking for new members, so why not give coastal rowing a try?

We are very grateful for the grants and other support generously given to us by the Lottery Fund, the Isle of Wight Sports Foundation , the Town and Parish Councils of Yarmouth, Totland, and Freshwater.


The support of these organisations enabled us to form the Club and to provide facilities for coastal rowing in the beautiful River Yar, the Solent and beyond

We are privileged to have, and are very grateful for, the use of the harbour facilities and support of the Harbour Authorities at Bembridge and Yarmouth
