About this item
David George interviews Marcus Dixon during the World Pilot Gig Championships. He is the Chairman of Lyme Regis Gig Club with two hundred and five members. He explains how they cater for members aged from 8 to 80, have a Club rowing programme, their own gym, storage and maintenance facilities, a competitive programme and two small skiffs for young members to learn to row. As an offshoot of the Club they have Shanty singers to help raise funds. In Lyme Regis there is a boat building academy and the Club has all of its wooden boats built by Gail McGarva from this academy who likes to get people from the town involved.
