Rowers from around world join gig event in the South West

Rowers are competing in this year's World Pilot Gig Championships.

The south-west tradition involves racing wooden boats, like the ones that used to guide ships through the waters off the Isles of Scilly and Cornwall.

Crews from across the region - and from as far afield the Netherlands and the United States - have been taking part.
