“ Cadgwith 4 Gig Boats”

our Gigs: Socoa

Cadgwith Pilot Gig Club race with our four gigs. "Buller", "Socoa", "Rose of Cadgwith" and "Tamarisk”

The second of our gigs came is "Socoa". Built in 1990 by John Moore of Mevagissey. "Socoa" was built as a sailing ship, but is now used for rowing.

She was named after a French sailing ship that got stranded off the Cadgwith coast in 1906. The Socoa was was stranded off the coast at Cadgwith in 1906. It was refloated on 31 July 1906 after her 50,000 barrels of cement had been thrown overboard. It had been heading for San Francisco from France to assist the rebuilding after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
