There are not many capital cities where within 30 minutes of leaving your office you can be onboard a yacht and dropping the mooring the mooring for an adventure. The Firth of Forth offers great sailing, in even better company, surrounded by wildlife from seals to puffins. (We particularly recommend keeping an eye out for the puffins, with their incredible 'crash landings' into the water when the effort to take off becomes too much!)
Club members regularly take friends out for an evening potter; a day-trip over the tide (leaving in the morning and returning in the evening); or perhaps longer trips. Our volunteers arrange Cruises in Company throughout the summer season, where members agree the passage, radio channels for communication and the all-important lunch stop.
All sailing events are published in the online Calendar and boatman hours are published on the Launch Service Times page.
A printable calendar listing all events and boatman hours is provided below. Note that the printable version may not be up to date when changes have to be made at short notice.
If you prefer the more solitary type of cruising, we'd love to hear where you've been and the tales of your passage. Every year there is a competition for the best logbook submitted (impressive, amusing, whatever type of reporting you prefer!).
Choose your next passage to one of the many nearby cruising destinations:
- Inchcolm Abbey
- Aberdour Harbour
- Silver Sands
- Forth Clyde Canal
- Many, many more!
