Clevedon rowers to recreate historical race to land a pilot on a ship


Two crews from Clevedon Pilot Gig Club are set to race to transfer a pilot to the Matthew just off the coast of Portishead.

With the support of the Cornish Pilot Gig Association (CPGA), the club has been working with Bristol Pilots Ltd and the ‘Matthew’ to plan the event which will take place on Weds 31st May. On this day, the Matthew will be transiting from Sharpness to Bristol and requires a pilot for passage through the Avon Gorge.
