24th November 2014
It is with regret that we have to inform everyone that due to insufficient entries the Loch Lomond Head Race on Sat. 29th November has been canceled
Thank you to all the clubs / crews who entered, especially anyone who chose this race instead of  Rutherford, your entry was very much appreciated but sadly most of your crews entered would have been racing against themselves. If anyone wish to come through to the Loch and experience our water, you are still very welcome! 

Any questions or queeries should be sent to Martin at safetyofficer@lochlomondrowingclub.co.uk or Lynn at raceentries@lochlomondrowingclub.co.uk
