Tuesday 31st August - Friday 3rd September
The Royal Forth Yacht Club (RFYC) invites you to enter the Edinburgh Cup 2021. Royal Forth sailors won the Edinburgh Cup seven times between 1964 and 1994 and is proud to have the only Dragon fleet remaining in Scotland.
Our website is live for entries and we can confirm that Bluebottle K192, the royal Dragon built in 1948, restored by David Heritage Racing Yachts and now under the care of the Royal Yacht Britannia Trust, is the first entrant and will be sailed by multiple Edinburgh Cup winning couple Graham & Julia Bailey.
Our base in Granton Harbour, Edinburgh, provides pontoon berthing and easy access to the magnificent open waters of the mid Firth, which is uninterrupted by large islands or commercial traffic, against the iconic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle and Arthur's Seat. The starting area is within approximately 1.5M of the harbour mouth.
The Covid 19 situation continues to evolve but we anticipate that this will have minimal, if any, effects on the racing itself but the nature of social events remains to be confirmed. Nonetheless we hope they will be broadly similar to those publicised for the event last year, including an evening reception aboard the former Royal Yacht Britannia.
Those wanting somewhere memorable to stay can enjoy a special rate for accommodation aboard Fingal, the former Northern Lighthouse Board vessel now converted into a luxury floating hotel near Britannia.
