Fixed seat rowing has been present as a form of transport ever since humans first started travelling vast areas of water, from the Romans to Watermen taxing passengers across busy rivers.
Today, fixed seat rowing comes in many forms with rich historical meanings to many local communities and is a rapidly growing team activity for both men and women.
Wivenhoe WivGigs is a gig racing team based in Wivenhoe founded, raced and run by the local community.
We participate in a number of local and national coastal rowing races throughout the year. We have a varied calendar of rowing and other social events.
Please email us if you would like to join us or find out a bit more about the club.
