We’ll return on September 21st. Entries open in the spring, watch this space…

Castle to Crane is the biggest open water rowing race to be held in Scotland. 13 miles of fierce racing from Dumbarton Castle to the Finnieston Crane in the heart of Glasgow. A fleet of 75 rowing boats will race up the Clyde on Saturday the 15th September.

The race is open to any fixed seat, coxed rowing boats of at least four oars. 

The route of the race passes many iconic places on the Clyde: Dumbarton Castle itself; under the Erskine bridge; past old ship yards and functioning commercial docks. For more details go to The Course
