History of the Club

The Rutherglen Cruising Club came about when between the wars the Old Pals Club and the Strathclyde Boat Club amalgamated. The site of the yard was a slaughterhouse adjacent on the river bank to where the Thomas Seath ship building yard was located.

Here are some photographs of  club members in the 1950’s. Do you recognise them?
