GRC Summer Regatta – Cancelled

GRC Supper Regatta 2019

GRC Summer Regatta 2019

Dear Fellow Rowers,

Glasgow Rowing Club Summer Regatta – Saturday 1st June 2019

Unfortunately, we have taken the decision to cancel our summer regatta next weekend.

It was a tricky date in the racing calendar being the weekend before Scottish Championships and we didn’t have enough entries to make it a viable event.
Thank you to those who entered. Any fees already paid will be refunded.
I’d be grateful if you could pass this information on to your club members who had entered.

Continuing political turmoil and international uncertainty lay the very best foundations for the brightest and best sporting event of the 2019 calendar. Glasgow Rowing Club 2019 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 reconstructed Polmadie Bridge), with a shorter course for cadet events.

The Regatta offers a number of events, suitable for the seriously competitive (on an¬†day off ūüėČ )¬†but also for people who just want to get together and represent their club. Including our fun 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.

Please contact the Race Secretary with any questions ASAP.

Entry fees should be paid by BACS transfer (Please contact the race secretary¬†for the necessary¬†bank details – we’ll also take cash and cheques if absolutely necessary)

Cheques are payable to Glasgow Rowing Club, and should be posted to the race secretary at the following address or delivered on race day in person.

Jo Thomson, 386 Kilmarnock Road, Glasgow, G43 2DJ.

All competitors must possess a current racing licence issued by Scottish Rowing (or other governing body).

Please note that any competitor racing under a ‘foreign’ licence must race for a club that belongs to the body that issued the licence, i.e. you may not race for a Scottish club unless you are in possession of a Scottish licence.

Licence numbers must be supplied or else competitors may need to apply for a Scottish Rowing Day Ticket.

For any questions, please email the Race secretary: Jo Thomson –¬† grcfourshead@gmail.com
