To anyone who keeps fuel or an outboard in the Engine Shed.

We discovered during the beach and shed tidy yesterday, that the lock was faulty. As we need to maintain access a locksmith was called out to sort it. He opened the shed but could not repair the lock (wear & tear led to tumblers working loose), so had to change the lock in order to secure the shed. He handed us the two new original keys and will return in next few days to fit a second lock with the same keys and more copies of the key.

If you need access to your engine or fuel in the coming week please contact myself of Ewen Chisholm. Following that we should have keys available for those that need them.

New locks have been fitted, both working off the same key.

If you have keys for the shed please return them to the bar and you will be issued with a new one free of charge.

If you don’t currently have keys but would like to make use of the shed, then there is a fee of £12/annum per engine for storage and a key will cost you £4.

We are gathering at the club for 10am tomorrow to tidy the foreshore and boat sheds, as well as the back garden. If you can lend a hand for whatever length of time that would be great.

Scotland v Ireland 6 Nations game will be on the BIG SCREEN at 2:15pm as well. So can toil in the morning, then relax with a drink and cheer on your team in the afternoon.

As well as the new boathouse that Ogilvie Homes have given us and what may be a wider panoramic view that we will ultimately have from the balcony, they have sent over the photos below that were taken of their development by a drone. The Club nestles nicely in the corner of the Esplanade.

It is with the deepest regret that I intimate the death of one of our oldest members, George Carson Snr. He passed away peacefully last night, surrounded by his family.

A stalwart of the Saturday morning rowing crowd, he loved his time afloat but also the life of the Club off the water. You could normally find George Snr. in the bar on a Saturday afternoon with his boys, following an outing afloat or, if the weather was not right, to one of the towns coffee mornings or cafes. The Boat Club Sessions were also a great favourite of his. He will be dearly missed.

The condolences from all at Royal West go to his family.

*** The funeral will be held at Greenock Crematorium on Wednesday 6th February at 2pm ***
