We took delivery of three new boats in April 2016, thanks to funding provided by Scottish Rowing, The BIG Lottery Fund and the Littleton Trust as well as a substantial donation by our Vice President, Mr Ian Robb.
Our Boat Naming ceremony took place on Sunday 8th May, with Provost Mike Robbins attending. 'Pendreich', named after the hill and farm across the river from the club, is the name of our new quad scull, 'Queenshaugh', named after the nearby street and the fields which we row alongside, is our new double scull, and 'Jemima', named after Mrs Jemima Robb, is our new double training gig.
A great day was had by all with the sun out in its glory to join us.
Some great results were achieved at several recent regattas by SRC members - at Strathclyde Park Regatta, Nithsdale Regatta and Clydesdale Regatta, Castle Semple Regatta, and Glasgow Rowing Club Summer Regatta with lots of medal wins and personal bests acheived. Well done to all the crews.
