CRSC brings together everyone with an interest in Scottish shipping.
We organise special excursions throughout the year, often involving unusual itineraries. In winter we hold monthly meetings at Jurys Inn, near Glasgow Central Station, where members enjoy special presentations and have a chance to chat. Visitors are welcome.
We produce two highly prized publications, ‘Clyde Steamers’ and ‘Review’, which are issued free to members each year. We also publish a popular DVD capturing key ferry movements and archive footage.
CRSC was founded in 1932, when the Clyde teemed with shipyards and paddle steamers. Today we focus on the fleet of car ferries and passenger ships around the British coast, especially on the west of Scotland. Uniting past and present is the Club’s unchanging purpose — to create opportunities for enthusiasts to meet, sail and talk together.
