Glasgow Commonwealth Games

26th July, 2014

The largest flotilla in the Clyde’s history. 250 boats, will sail from Greenock to Glasgow’s Pacific Quay.

The Commonwealth Flotilla is an official Festival 2014 event and the RYA  Scotland team is delighted to be part of the Games experience for spectators and visitors.

Our trip up the Clyde and into Glasgow at the end of July won’t just be about the sail itself. If your boat isn’t one of the 250 registered to take part then all is not lost as there will be lots of other chances to get involved and enjoy this spectacular opportunity. Whether you join the flotilla onboard Clyde Cruiser passenger boat, watch shore-side in Greenock or at the Glasgow Riverside Museum or even sign up as a volunteer for the event, there are a number of ways to join in the fun so please don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!

The Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme is a key part of the Games experience for spectators and visitors. Running until the end of August 2014, it will showcase the best of Scottish culture alongside creative work from across the Commonwealth and be a nationwide celebration of the Games, reaching its peak as Glasgow bursts into life at Games time. There are two strands: a Scotlandwide programme called Culture 2014; and a Games-time celebration in Glasgow running alongside the sporting action called Festival 2014.
