    Hi, just received a flyer through my door this evening and would be quite interested to try the rowing out, i do work full time through the week and don’t get in til 6.30pmish, so not sure if this would suit or not but quite flexible at weekends. I have done rowing before as i took a white water rafter challenge for charity on the River Tay back in 2008 with my work. Looks really interesting and would be willing to give it a go. Thanks. Don’t know if you need any of my details?

      Hello there, Most weekends the boat is out at the moment. The time is on the calender which is a tab on the main page. The time has to change each week due to the tides which makes it perticularly unhelpful however we will never cure nature! I’ll drop you an email as well to let you know of this weekends times.

    We are a group of traditional boat rowers in Richmond, Surrey, and as one of our boats is a Tay Gig our minds drifted to thoughts of a summer outing to row on the Tay. Do you have boats that can be borrowed or rented for a long weekend? I would expect between 8 and 10 of us would be interested. Your calendar is bare for June and I wonder if there are any local events we could join in on? All planning info gratefully received!

    My name is Gillian and I’m a member of the Eskmuthe RC. Myself and another member of our club are attending the seminar at Loch Insh this weekend but we are a little bit stranded. If you are attending is there a chance of a lift, we will of course help out with petrol money. If you are able to help it would be much appreciated.

    Look forward to hearing from you either way.

    I interested in trying out the rowing, as I am disabled I don’t know which group I can join?

    Kind regards.

    • April 13, 2015 8:13 pm


      Best thing to do is come along to the Social rowing. Being disabled is not a major issue depending on the type, we can adapt the boat a certain extent to allow for disabilities. If you want to contacnt me direct that would be the best option;

      Thank you
