Thanks to a generous donation in memory of Curly Galbraith, our Try Rowing schools outreach programme has been secured for the next five years.

Curly, a long-standing member of Rob Roy BC, launched the Club’s Junior Squad in the 1970s, resulting in an almost continuous line of Rob Roy juniors representing GB ever since.

Our Try Rowing programme allows us not only to introduce state school pupils to rowing, a sport which they might not otherwise have tried, but also enables us to offer scholarships to support talented young scullers.

We (and the next generations of Try Rowing participants and potential GB scullers) are immensely grateful to Curly Galbraith’s family for their generosity.
