Caradon Pilot Gig Club is hosting the 2023 Mixed Championships on Saturday 29th July 2023.
We are pleased to invite you to the 2023 Mixed Championships. The event will be run from
Jubilee/Brunel Green on the Saltash Waterside and we will be racing up river (towards the Tavy). The
Green provides a fantastic vantage point for the racing and enables us to have quick changeovers. This
year’s event will once again be run alongside Saltash Regatta, so there will be plenty to keep you
entertained between racing.
The cox’s meeting will be held at 8.30am with the first race due off at 9.00am. We appreciate that
some of you may be travelling a long distance, but it is essential that at least one representative from
your club is in attendance at the cox's meeting.
Categories for the Championships include:
• Mixed Juniors - Under 16 years on 1st September 2022 (3 boys / 3 girls)
• Mixed Open - Over 16 years on the day of the event (3 men / 3 ladies)
• Mixed Veterans - Over 40 years on the day of the event (3 men / 3 ladies)
• Mixed Super Vets - Over 50 years on the day of the event (3 men / 3 ladies)
Be members of a club - no composite crews are permitted

In order to run this event, participating clubs will be required to put forward a loan gig for the
championship. All gigs loaned must be seaworthy. All clubs loaning gigs will be offered a contribution
towards towing expenses. Gigs are loaned in good faith and therefore all coxswains should have a good
level of competence (no novice coxswains please).
Cushions and pins will be provided in each gig, but each crew will need to provide their own oars and
a working VHF radio. You must bring enough oars for each of your crews and we strongly advise
that you do not row or cox in more than one category if at all possible. There may well be
crossovers between categories and racing will not be paused for you or your oars if you/they are out in
a heat already on the water.
Crews must be the same 6 rowers – there cannot be a rotation of rowers within a squad. Due to the
nature of the running of the event, a change of coxswain will be permitted, if necessary.
