The Club was the venue for a British Rowing accredited coaches course held over the last two weekends. A tutor from Welsh Rowing ran the course on behalf of the Scottish Coastal Rowing Association. It was attended by members of coastal rowing clubs from Mid-Argyll, Portsoy, Pittenweem, Cockenzie & Port Seton and Galgael.
All the participants passed this initial phase of thier course and return to thier clubs to prepare for an external assessment in the coming months. Locally GalGael plan to start rowing on the Clyde from Kelvin Harbour, at the new Transport Museum. Thier first planned coaching outing will be this Wednesday.
The SCRA would like to thank all at Royal West for thier assistance in facilitating this course. All the participants expressed thanks for the hospitality shown to them by Royal West members during the course.
