Dear Fellow Rowers,

Glasgow Rowing Club Summer Regatta – Saturday 18th June 2022

Continuing political turmoil and international uncertainty lay the very best foundations for the brightest and best sporting event of the 2022 calendar, Glasgow Rowing Club Summer Regatta.

The club is delighted to invite you to the GRC Summer Regatta. Races will be held over an 1100m side by side course, from the ‘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 a day off 😉 ) 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 the day before the event (Please contact the race secretary for the necessary bank details)

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: Katie Perrie at  grcfourshead@gmail.com
