  • (1888PressRelease) March 18, 2011 - This year Crew Clothing is proud to launch its association with pilot gig rowing and in particular our partnership with the Mount Bay Pilot Gig team - the ambassadors for our GBR heritage range (

    It was an easy decision for Crew Clothing ( to sponsor the club as Crew Clothing's heritage is based in sailing, rowing and such pursuits. The company started out with polo shirts with the distinctive logo, numbers and stripes. Now the company create sailing wear as well as casual clothing for men and women.

    The Mount Bay Pilot Gig team are a truly dedicated group of men and women, who once they have finished their working day (be that fire fighting, fundraising or law) head for the shoreline and sea to train. The passion for rowing is clear and the dedication outstanding.

    'I love being out at sea, leaving the everyday on the shore. Finding that clear and focused head in the boat; watching crew come together over the weeks leading up to the championships - becoming a team through the laughter, tears and sweat.' - Helen Bowkett (team title), MD Keel Consultancy

    'Other sports can be won by an individual piece of genius but in the rowing world you can have the most gifted rower in your crew but if just one of the others isn't pulling their weight or rowing well you won't win a thing' - Gary Rich (team title), Fire Fighter

    'My youngest daughter was once asked what her dad did for a job, "he's a rower" she said!' - Neil Harvey (stroke rower), Policeman
    'I have an 8 year old daughter, 80 year old poorly mother and I work 3 days a week as a Cardiac Physiotherapist. With all this juggling and demands, rowing has been my constant that keeps me grounded. It's a marvellous sport to keep body and mind in tip top condition' - Teresa Jago(team title), Cardiac Physiotherapist
