Members become club coaches

Some of our club members took part in Scottish Rowing and British Rowing’s level 2 coaching course at the Scottish Rowing Centre at Strathclyde Park this weekend. Eight of our members are now trained to coach thanks to funding from Sport Scotland. It gives the club the ability to get more people involved in the sport. A special thanks to Sophie Warburton who put our guys through their paces.

This week club members have been taking part in Go Live! at the Green. The fun family event is celebrating Glasgow playing host to the European Games and is giving everyone the chance to take part in various sports.

With the help of Scottish Rowing, the volunteers from Glasgow Rowing Club have been providing mini coaching sessions for people keen to try out the sport. Volunteer Ann Black said, ‘it’s been great to be involved in this initiative with Scottish Rowing. People are trying  out the sport in a fun environment and we also get to promote our club.’

Go Live is on at Glasgow Green until August 11, 2018.

We welcomed Boyd Tunnock  to the club today to name our new boat, bought thanks to the kind donation from the Tunnock’s owner.

Boyd spent time chatting to club members congratulating Calum Young and Ronan Welch, winners of last weekend’s Scottish National championships, before naming our boat, Snowball.

Boyd said: ‘It’s a real pleasure to support Glasgow Rowing Club. It’s important for everyone to have the opportunity to exercise and get out and enjoy he fresh air and I hope the boat will get plenty of use by all your members.’

GRC Summer Regatta Cancelled

Hi Everyone,

It is with great regret that we will have to cancel this year’s GRC Summer regatta. Thank you so much for your interest in this event and the support received. Unfortunately the number of entries was very low this year and would have resulted in a large number of cancellations and limited racing for those left.

We are intending on having a we club regatta with scratch crews (a bit of fun) along with a barbecue and boat naming ceremony so if anyone fancies coming along for a bit of fun on a Saturday lunch time, you will be more than welcome. I’ll give more details when we know them.

Many thanks,

Steve Dear
