GRC Summer Regatta – Cancelled

Dear Fellow Rowers,

Glasgow Rowing Club Summer Regatta – Saturday 16th June 2018

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 all the support we have 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

GRC Captain

Political turmoil and international uncertainty lay the very best foundations for the brightest and best sporting event of the 2018 calendar. Glasgow Rowing Club 2018 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 😉 ) 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.

Please contact the Race Secretary with any questions ASAP.

 

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