The Police and Coastguard have asked us not to launch any boats from the Club tomorrow between 08:00 and 14:00. This is due to the operation that will be underway to recover, relocate and then destroy the unexploded bomb discovered off Gourock.

As you will see in the local press there are exclusion zones onshore and on the water, but we have been politely asked to avoid going afloat at all in this period. The bomb is to be moved from Gourock to the Hole off Holy Loch for destruction. One would image there will be a lot of Naval, Coastguard, Clydeport and Police activity, so best to stay ashore.

George Carson has been working his socks off over the last few months organizing events, not only at the Club but now also at the Beacon.

Last weekend we had Davy Nicol’s album launch at the Club, next weekend (10th Oct) we have Broomberry Drive playing. Then on 14th November Ten Gallon Bratz are also making a return visit.

These events are always good and very busy. Make sure you get there early to get a seat.

If you want any further information about these events or anything else George has planned please drop him a message at his Club email address,

This title above might sound like the start to children’s adventure story, but to one member it is more of a love story.

Past VP Norman Campbell set himself the task earlier this year of getting one of the Sixteens usable, having achieved that he then decided to do a second one. The results of his hours of labour can be seen in the Racing Shed. Not only did he get the two boats ready but he also repaired and adjusted sculls to suit them.

The thanks of the Committee and all members of the Club go to Norman for his work in repairing these boats and, in doing so, extending the heritage of this Club.
