Red spotted neckerchiefs on the ocean wave!

Red spotted neckerchiefs on the ocean wave!

Our red spotted neckerchiefs are part of the club kit at Clevedon Pilot Gig Club, and we're delighted to receive another update on the club's progress from secretary Richard James. 

Club membership goes from strength to strength. In May over 70 members of the club travelled to the Isles of Scilly for the annual World Pilot Gig Championships. This was the largest contingent of any club - just four years after the club was founded, and a year after the club took part in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the River Thames.

Richard tells us "Instructions were that all members had to be correctly attired in matching club kit to include their red neckerchiefs, courtesy of Aidan Sweeney."  Club members in their uniform are shown with their two gigs, Blackbird and Watch and Pray, in the photo taken on the beach at Hugh Town. 

We're pleased the club is flourishing, and glad to hear from Richard that "The Club now has over 100 regular rowing members and our stock of neckerchiefs is almost out, so we will undoubtedly be back in the near future for a further supply!" We'll be glad to help, and look forward to hearing more about the club's progress.

Red spotted neckerchiefs/handkerchiefs are available in our online shop, and in our shop in Brecon. You are welcome to telephone us on 01874 623613 if you have any questions or would like to place an order by phone.
