Langstone Sailing Club's Pilot Gig Boat at the Hayling Island RNLI Event

Langstone Sailing Club is just round the corner from the RNLI's Hayling Island station and the club were able to take advantage of the Open Day event by displaying one of their Pilot Gig boats. Pilot Gig boats were originally used to ferry navigation Pilots to & from the ships that they were guiding through difficult waters. Since the boats are no longer needed for that, Pilot Gig racing has become very popular.
