Pendeen Gig club has three fully qualified level two, fixed seat, coaches.
Jan Barton completed the course, and passed with flying colours, in March 2014.
Shirley Pitts our Junior coordinator qualified alongside Stephen Brown during the early part of 2017 to complete the three coaches still involved with our club.
The club's aim of having any fully qualified coaches has now become reality and they can now apply to gain the British Rowing accreditation mark. The club is thrilled to boast that they can now provide three qualified coaches, well done to all of them a brilliant achievement.
The accreditation is an award set down by all governing bodies to show that the club is a safe & secure environment for children to precipitate in.
The club also boasts a number of male & female qualified coxes, first aiders, two welfare officers & a safety officer and may other co-opted members who work together as a team.
For further information please contact our club secretary using the email form on this page.
