On Sunday 4th June from 10am until 4pm, the Royal West of Scotland Amateur Boat Club will be giving tours of its clubhouse on Greenock Esplanade and running free kayak taster sessions suitable for those with no prior experience or anyone considering returning to the sport. The sessions are aimed at adults. 14 to 18 year olds are also welcome but need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All you need to take is spare clothes plus a towel and you can give it a go. For further details, or to book in advance, please email the club: canoeing@rwsabc.com .

Below are a couple of flyers that Willie Bell has produced with more information, if you want to circulate them.

We have not yet worked out how to make the calendar more interactive, but we have updated it so you can see in a simpler format the functions and events booked at the Club.

Will try and keep this updated through the Summer

Hon. Sec.

Year 2017-18 started at the beginning of April, with subs due by the end of April.
There have been a few changes at the Club in the last few weeks.
  1. We have a new Rowing Convenor, Karen Graham. Karen has been a member for a number of years, having rowed for the Club since the mid-90′s.
  2. We have replaced the cellar chiller plant. This should improve the condition of the draught beer.
  3. We have moved to Tennent’s Caledonian as our draught beer supplier. They were already supplying all of our cans and bottles, this has rationalised deliveries and allowed us to widen & update our draught offer. We are now serving Tennent’s Lager, Caledonian Best and Heverlee Lager, as well as retaining Tartan and Guinness.
  4. The security system has been replaced and linked with the new fire detection system. Both then connected to a 24 hr monitoring centre.

Coming up are the following;

  1. Tomorrow (Tuesday 2nd May) the telecoms mast will be taken down. We have retained the fence panels and will be using these elsewhere on the grounds.
  2. Once the mast is away we will be left with a large amount of aggregate in the back garden that we intend using to refinish in front of the boat shed. A work party will be required for this.
  3. Once the mast is down we have asked Ogilvie to remove the fence posts above our engine shed, but more importantly the Ladies Changing Room. This will allow us to have the roofs of both of these buildings resealed.
  4. We are also about to have the brickwork of the south wall of the clubhouse sealed as well.
