Clydesdale Amateur Rowing Club was formed in 1857 and is one of the oldest clubs in Scotland. Clydesdale ARC is situated on the river Clyde and is one of many clubs in the area that provides rowing in Glasgow. The boathouse is sited very close to the city centre in the west side of Glasgow Green near Trongate just off Greendyke Street.
The weekend is the busiest time for boating on the Clyde with members down from 8am onwards both Saturday and Sunday. Our athletes train almost every day of the week, both on and off the water. Typically, there is one rest day (usually a Friday) per week in our training programmes.
Clydesdale club members range from juniors to students, professionals and the retired folk of Glasgow and beyond. We have a good number of men and women crews that row at novice and senior levels. Our boats range from the single scull, to pairs, doubles, fours, quads and eights. Not all of our members are oarsmen, as we also require coxes to steer our crews safely along the river Clyde together with a little vocal encouragement.
We would encourage anyone interested in rowing to come down and have a chat with us, or get in touch via the “Contact Us” page.
