Royal was built in 1988 by Ralph Bird and was the first gig owned by Truro River Rowing Club.

Her name was chosen as a tribute to the main sponsor, the Royal Hotel of Truro (now the Mannings Hotel).

Though of a heavy build and considerable vintage, she still competes yearly, winning three trophies last year alone.

Besides four decades of competing in rowing events all over the country, she is also one of a small number of gigs that is still sailed, and we are proud to have the necessary skills in the club to do so.
