The West Boathouse participated in the Glasgow Doors Open Day event and welcomed 371 visitors to the building over the weekend. Club members rose to the occasion as usual: providing a friendly welcome, guided tours of the Category B Listed Building and some much needed refreshments and chat up in the tea room. Feedback was really positive from visitors and volunteers alike. In addition, 3 crews from across the memberships of Clydesdale and Clyde participated in a Scratch Regatta in coxless quads to entertain our visitors.
Our thanks go to the 15 volunteers who made it a success, with hospitality being led by Sally Nicholson, Mary Snape and Stella Hawthorne; Welcome provided by Mike Lekakis, Anne Morrison, Fiona Robinson, Amy Nolan, Fraser MacIntyre, Rosie Upstill-Goddard and Stephanie Smith; Guided Tours by Gordon Simpson, Duncan Paterson, Mike Williamson, John Eadie, Mark O-Hare and Andrew McConnell.
