Mon 22 January 2018

The Royal West Boat Club (RWSABC) are about to commence their program of winter talks.  They will be held at the RWSABC Boat Club at the west end of the Esplanade, Greenock.  

As the RWSABC accepted the Scottish Canoeing Association's invitation to join the Club Impact Programme, it has been suggested that we open a number of the talks to kayakers from other clubs in the area - or any interested parties, as a means of promoting kayaking and water sports.
