Some action shots of Royal West members during our 2014 Opening Cruise,  the intrepid few sheltering from the 20mph bitterly cold easterly winds…in the bar. It was agreed this was a very nice place to wait and see if the weather calmed… it didn’t

 Colin Campbell braved the vicious wind and got out… ..well done !!

Some work was done to prepare boats and oars for the coming season.

If you know anyone who could fill in gaps please let me know and I can add them to rota.

We also plan to run a Frost Bite Series Starting on Sunday 21st September for 8 Weeks. It would be good to see if we can actually run one this season as weather can be better than some Wednesday nights .

Prize Giving will be 19:30 on 14th November – Please reserve this date so we can have maximum attendance.

It would be great to see as many boats as possible out on Wednesday 16th April for the Springboard One-off race.

See you all on the water

Duncan and his band are appearing at the Royal West on Saturday 15th March. Tickets are only £8 per person, and are available at the Club.

Duncan originally came to the fore in 1982, when the big-selling Scottish singer at the time, Valerie Dunbar, released a single of ‘Always Argyll’, written by Duncan and a friend, Jimmy Jamieson, from Tighnabruaich. The song went on to be covered by over thirty artists in Scotland, Ireland, and Australia. One of the groups which covered the song was the hugely popular folk band The Clydesiders.

When their guitarist decided to call it a day in 1982, Duncan stepped in, beginning an eighteen year career with the band, during which he recorded seven albums and several singles with them, and appeared in countless concerts and TV programmes around the UK and Europe.

With his band, including long time collaborator Cy Jack (who will be with Duncan on 15th March), Lindisfarne drummer Ray Laidlaw, and renowned fiddler Chris Stout, Duncan had support slots with Donnie Munro, Martin Carthy and Midge Ure, and a magical duet at Glasgow’s Atheneum Theatre with legendary Pogues front man Shane McGowan, sharing vocals on ‘Loch Lomond’ at a tribute concert for the great Scottish singer-songwriter Matt McGinn.

This will be a great night. Don’t miss it!

Below are the winners for February

1st – Sharon Dunn

2nd – Ian Craig

3rd – Sandy Disselduff
