Clydesdale ARC have recently taken delivery of our new safety Launch named the “Katrine”. The naming ceremony took place as part of the Club Sculls competition on 25th September. Our brand new launch will provide essential safety cover for our members on the river. In June of this year our grant application was submitted to Sports Council for Glasgow. Our exisiting launch was still functioning but nearing the end of it’s lifespan & requiring increasing maintenance.
With cost of a new launch estimated at around £900 we sought assisitance from Sports Council for Glasgow to contribute to the purchase. We were delighted when our application for a £500 grant towards the cost of this essential piece of equipment had been successful.
Clydesdale has a growing membership and following the success of GB rowing team in Rio we have been inundated with a new batch of rowers, so having a new reliable launch has never been more important.
The primary objective of the General Grant scheme is to stimulate development of sport, at all levels, within Glasgow and CARC are very grateful for their support.
