This evening, my theme is rowing and sculling on the River Clyde at Glasgow, Scotland. This activity 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.

Here is the stretch of river looking towards Glasgow City from Glasgow Green.

Elsewhere today, I have been busy collating a vast portfolio of photograph images from the last year or so and posting a selection to my Flickr account, a task which will take some to complete.

On the ancestry research side, posted information on Hunter family history to my Glasgow Ancestry blog. Pleased also to see that I have linked up a couple of folks from the States researching their Glasgow, Harper, family history.

Working on a few small group Scotland tours, one of which has now been confirmed.

I am keen to obtain some images of new born lambs but so far have been unsuccessful in finding any in the fields.
