CRSC brings together everyone with an interest in Scottish shipping — even during a pandemic!
In recent months we have held a series of ‘virtual’ meetings by Zoom video conferencing, built around a special talk or presentation. These meetings have been accessed by members and friends from around the world, in a way that was impossible at traditional gatherings in Glasgow. After the formal presentation, members have a chance to chat informally with each other online.
Under normal conditions we organise special excursions, often involving unusual itineraries, and hold winter meetings at Jurys Inn, near Glasgow’s Central Station.
Each year we produce two highly prized publications, Clyde Steamers and Review, which are issued free to members.
We also publish a popular DVD capturing key ferry movements and archive footage, and offer discounted prints and books.
Our digital archive, comprising hundreds of unique and rare photographs, can be accessed through ‘members only’ posts on this website.

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.
A list of officeholders can be found further down this page.
