Yesterday I went to the award presentation where Exmouth Gig Club received its prize from the One Family Foundation (a Mutual Financial Services provider) – £25k which will enable the Club to buy a new gig boat. You may remember that people had to vote for the Exmouth Gig Club project against other community projects across the country. In the end the Club won comfortably but that was entirely due to people voting for our project. To those of you who did vote and I know a lot of you did – many thanks!
Here are a few photos from the day.

The Club has now commissioned a new gig to be built by Louis Hunkin of Fowey who has also built various other boats including Dagger, Essa, Keith Owen, Nipper, Pulpit Rock, Templer, Troy and Winspit.
A very special day for Exmouth Gig Club and a huge thanks to the One Family Foundation. I am hoping to make a trip to Fowey in due course to see our new boat being built.
