On the Water

On Saturday have our huge Castle to Crane race - we hope to have 76 boats this year! The race kicks off at Dumbarton at 10:45 and they'll all be crossing the finish line at the Finnieston Crane between 1 and 3 pm. If you'd like to spectate you can see the race from

  • Dumbarton Castle - Great for seeing the start. 
  • Bowling Harbour where our pals at the BHive at Scottish Canals are putting on a shebang to help cheer the boats on. 
  • Glasgow itself - we race up past the Tall Ship and the Festival Site before finishing at the Finnieston Crane. You get a great view from Bells' and Millenium bridges! 

Around the festival Site we'll have boats playing and coming and going as well as free have-a-go sessions in canoes from Metro Outdoors available all weekend! On the pontoons you'll also find the Tall Ship La Malouine that you can have a tour of.
