Can I on behalf of the members of the Firth of Clyde Coastal Rowing Club thank the many individuals who have helped the club to progress over the last year. We were extremely grateful for donations made to our recent various fundraising events by many local businesses, in particular the Co-op, Morrisons and Iain Smith at the Willowbank Hotel.

Active fundraising allows us to keep the cost of membership very low and makes coastal rowing an access to watersport activity for all.

Indeed, we have members from teenage years to well into the 70s. I would also like to thank Carolyn Elder at Largs Yacht Haven, Gordon Cochrane at Largs Sailing Club and Stephen McDonald at Lounge who have all provided us with preferential access to their facilities. We continue to welcome new members who want to give it a try, from 10.45am on Saturday mornings in the Yacht Haven.
