Glasgow Rowing Miles Better

A big thank you to the Sports Council for Glasgow for the grant that has helped the club to purchase a new rowing machine.

The new machines have been a welcome addition to the club and members have been using these to improve both technique, fitness and speed, especially over the winter months.

Curry on up the Clyde

Are you CURRagious enough to SPICE up your life at the great GRC CURRY night?

Book your diaries (maybe not with an old flame) for the HOTTEST date on the calendar – 8th April, 6pm for 7pm.

Follow the spice road from Goa to Giffnock or Bombay to Bishopton as expert chefs and questionable rowers will be cooking up a culinary storm of vindaloos, Rogan josh and Thai Green CURRIES.

Tickets will be at the bargain basement price of £15 for adults and £7.50 for children/students for this burns night without the poetry – Snap them up fast before the price triples on ebay.

Bring your own bottle to sooth your tortured tongue.

The Clyde will be extra CHILLI that night.

If you are interested, can you put your name on the list at the noticeboard and advise how many friends you will be bringing  so that we can gauge numbers? We want to raise funds to make your club better.

Be there or be UNCOOL.

We’ll not see you there :-(.


or in English if you prefer ;o)

Merry Christmas from GRC

Wishing you all the best over the festive period. We hope Santa was good to you.

Indulge all you want as we’ve got the perfect solution to get fit and loose the Christmas spread.

GRC Santa (Dash) Row 2016

GRC entered Christmas with not just one, or even two but over 27 Santas. Even Clydesdale ARC managed to attract a load of Santas to the clyde to join in the fun sport. Some of them were even heard to be hollering that famous old santa phrase “Ho Ho Ho” :-). We hope they all enjoyed getting a bit of fitness training in before jetting off with Rudolph and the other reindeer to deliver all the presents to good boys and girls across the world.


And, as if evidence were needed, here’s the photos…

Santa Dash GRC Style

Hi Folks,

We’ve lost our minds and decided rowing a 5k in Santa suits seems like a good way to have fun :-). We need as many Santa’s as we can gather to row up to Belvedere and back down. A seat will cost £5 and you’ll get a Santa Suit to wear to give us some individual identity. All proceeds will be given to the Beatson Charity for Cancer Research and we’re likely to get a mention in some of Scotland’s finest press….

Come join our Santa Dash as only GRC can do.

Looking to get some boats on the water for 10am and there may be some mulled wine and mince pies for after.

To sign up, drop us a note on the Contact Us page.

See you all on Saturday, bright and early 🙂

GRC Fours Head



Thanks to all crews who came along and competed over the 5000m Clyde Course.

With no stream and sunshine it was a successful day!

The results below have been revised since the event prize giving…in error Glasgow Uni were awarded the prize for WRes2 4+, this prize was actually won by Clydesdale ARC – Clough.

New Committee, New Year

AGM complete and new club year upon us.

Membership is now due and rates have been set, you can see them on the website here. Please arrange your payments with our new treasurer Ann Black (you can pay by cheque, cash, bank transfer, paypal or in installments by standing order) so we can build a list of members who have paid. If payment is not received by December, use of the club facilities (including access to your own boat if you have one) will be withheld until all fees due are paid. You have been warned…

The pages on the website detailing who is the committee have been updated as have membership fees so please take a look and get to know your new team. Give any of us a shout if you have any questions or suggestions for the club. Subsequent positions (boathouse manager, media, safety etc) will be decided at the first committee meeting and this will be updated then.

As we launch this year, we will be working towards building the club and teams, starting with our 4’s Head of the River race in November (Volunteers will be required) so please get involved where you can and support our wee club. (we may have social events before this so keep watching this space….)

Your elected committee…
