Dear Fellow Rowers,

Glasgow Rowing Club Summer Regatta

Glasgow Rowing Club Summer Regatta

Political turmoil and international uncertainty lay the very best foundations for the brightest and best sporting event of the 2017 calendar. Glasgow Rowing Club 2017 Summer Regatta.

The club is delighted to invite you to the GRC Summer Regatta. Races will be held over an 1100 m side by side course, from the new ‘Smart’ bridge on Cowans’ Bend to the GRC Clubhouse (passing through the former Polmadie Bridge), with a shorter course for cadet events.

The Regatta offers a number of events, suitable for the seriously competitive but also for people who just want to get together and row for their club. Including a new invitation event for the whole club to take part in involving a relay of sprinters building points for the event, fastest overall club wins. Emphasis will remain squarely on fun.

An excellent selection of food to fuel the competitors and spectators will be available from the GRC Tearoom and Barbecue.


Final Regatta Draw is now available

We are very grateful for the very large entry to the regatta.  However we regret that in order to timetable the event with sufficient time gaps between races, some entries have had to be removed and some others moved to alternative events (of the same boat type) to avoid clashes.  In particular we had to remove the majority of the mixed events as these were proving impossible to schedule.

Please double check the draw and crew names list to spot which crews are in which events and when the heat, semi and finals are due to take place.

The revised invoice for each club should be available on



Entry fees should be paid by cheque or BACS transer. (Please contact the race secretary for the necessary bank details)
