Sculling on River Clyde
Sculling on River Clyde with Glasgow city in background
Tonight, I am reprising a trip to central Glasgow, Scotland via Glasgow Green which afforded an opportunity to view sculling training on the Clyde.
Rowing and sculling on the River Clyde at Glasgow is an activity which has been formalised for at least 150 years using a course between the Tidal Weir at Glasgow Green and Belvidere Straight. Sculling is not permitted in the commercial river channel between Greenock and Glasgow.

Participants of rowing and sculling must comply with the River Clyde Rowing Rules.
Clubs include the Clydesdale Amateur Rowing Club and the Glasgow University Boat Club.
There is an annual regatta in May.
