Partners, Funders and Sponsorship

It takes many hands to carry the boat, and many folk to help put on an event like this. See below for organisations that partner with us and funders that support the event. 

We're currently looking for sponsorship for the event. If you think you, or your company would like to support this significant new public event in Glasgow please get in touch.

In 2015 a group of enthusiastic volunteers got together and formed a coastal rowing club in Glasgow. Using boats built by the GalGael Trust the group have quickly grown to more than 60 members and will be heavily involved in helping with the event, including running the Glasgow Cup racing.
