Welcome to the Thames Barbarians
Thames Barbarians Pilot Gig Club is based at Gravesend on the river Thames. We draw our membership from London and row on the River Thames and the south and east coasts.
We offer a year-round mix of rowing activities and opportunities to explore the Thames, Solent, South Coast and beyond.
- Cornish Gig training and competition in Gig racing leagues (south east & south coast)
- Adventure rows such as: rowing the length of the Medway (July 2021), weekend pub rows and more
- Local racing events against other clubs and leagues
- Summer camp with a mix of rowing and social activities
Our regular club days are on Saturdays, usually with a minimum of two rows. We welcome new members, come and test it out for free by arrangement or at one of our taster days. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

Club kit page
We order our kit through Godfrey Sports. You can buy pieces at any time by placing an order through the online shop. We also do a collated Club order (which gives a few discounts) once or twice a year. If you are part of a Club race crew, the minimum requirement is a Club top and cap.
