Program (with course rules and information for competitors): western-8s-program
On January 28th the Western Eights Head of the Clyde, hosted by Glasgow University Boat Club, will kick off the 2017 racing season. We are keen that this year will see the event regain its former strength after continuous cancellations due to poor weather and the demolition of Polmadie Bridge.
Racing will be held on the Clyde’s 5 km course, from the Belvidere straight to the viewing platform on the Glasgow University BC – Clydesdale straight at Glasgow Green. Two divisions will be held, at 11am and 1:30pm.
Please see flyer and course map for details of times, costs, contact details and racing route.
