GRC Summer Barbecue

GRC had it’s summer club row and barbecue. Sorry we didn’t let everyone know on the website but it has been experiencing technical difficulIMG-20160806-WA0002ties recently. Back up and running now though….

Club members shared boats to get 2 eights, a four and a quad on the water together and all had an enjoyable paddle. Once the hard work was over, we had burgers, sausages and kebabs while swilling beer, wine and juice. During all the frivolities we named our latest two additions to the fleet, Sausage Row (name decided by club membIMG-20160806-WA0000ers at the previous barbecue), a lightweight Sims racing single scull, and Bill Mac (named after a valued and dedicated member  who passed away recently – he has been sorely missed), a Stampfli racing single scull.

After which we said our goodbys to our most active coach and all round good guy, Don ‘the Don’ Milesh while running one of our spectacular raffles….


GRC Regatta 2016

Our thanks must go out to the Umpires, racing organisers, catering staff, sponsors, competitors and the army of volunteers who all were essential in the running of our GRC Summer Regatta 2016.

We will post video and photos in due course but thanks everyone for making this an enjoyable and effective event. We hope to see you all at our Head race in November and will be inviting you all to our social events in the coming months.

Junior Learn to Row session

We have had a very successful LTR session for some junior rowers from Glasgow. Starting with 5 we whittled it down to the top 3 (Lewis, Kier and Ryan) who learned to row, ending up in our fine shell doubles with their coaches to compete against each other and show the teachers a thing or two.

GRC Barbecue

We had a fantastic night and managed to view the fantastic fireworks display laid on by Glasgow City Council and a beautifully synchronized soundtrack laid on by Don and Kate Steven who we owe a huge thank you to. We managed to sell some lovely home-made burgers and a load of raffle tickets. In total we managed to raise a grand total of over £250 and we’d like to thank everyone involved.

We also had a wee vote to name our new single bought using Sandy’s takings in the tuckshop and the one that most members (not me it has to be said) voted for was Sausage Row. We’ll be having a wee naming ceremony in the not too distant future which I hope you will be able to join us for.

Hopefully we’ll be having some more social events in the near future and hope you can join us.

GRC Barbecue

We invite all members and friends to the clubhouse for a fantastic evening of interesting conversations, charcoal’d sausages and burgers in the open (Hopefully dry) air and exciting entertainment provided by Glasgow City council to commemorate the day a noble activist finalised his plans to blow up the Houses of Parlament (though not the day he tried to enact it due to some other sport stealing the day for their own selfish goals (pun intended 😉 ), the 4th November (next Wednesday).

There will be plenty of fundraising stuff going on so remember to bring your purses guys and girls alike and take part in the first of many enjoyable social events we’re going to have this year.

We look forward to seeing you all next Wednesday (4th November) at the clubhouse from 6:30pm for the big fireworks event on Glasgow Green.

World Champion

Glasgow Rowing Club would like to congratulate former member Sam Scrimgeour who won GOLD at the World Rowing Championships at Aiguebelette in France. Please see the video below to see Sam and rowing partner Joel Cassells storm past the field to take an early lead and maintain it to the finish in 6 min 29 seconds. Well done Sam, we had every confidence you’d get the gold.
