The club had a very successful, if somewhat damp, day at Glasgow Rowing Club’s “summer” regatta on Saturday.
The rain seemed to pour all day with only the occasional break of sunshine, but that didnt stop Team Clydesdale from scoring numerous wins:
Ju16 2x, WRes2 8+, Ju18 1x, ORes2 4x, Ju16 1x, WJu16 4x, Ju15 1x, Res2 1x, Masters 4+, WRes2 2x (EUBC composite) and W4x (EUBC composite).
The day ended with a 3-way club sprint across singles, pairs, doubles and quads – with Clydesdale taking the honours over Glasgow Rowing Club and Castle Semple Rowing Club.

All crews should be aware of the Rules of the Clyde, and keep left when rowing up to the start.

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.
If you want to find out more about the funding available to clubs please access www.scglasgow.org.uk
