Commodore’s Welcome – Sailing at the Royal Forth Yacht Club

Sailing is one of the best ways to get away from it all, leaving the grind of work behind and enjoying stimulating time on the water – whether that is the relaxation of cruising, pushing yourself physically in a race, or socialising with friends and family.

For sailors based in and around Edinburgh, who want convenience and protected waters, Royal Forth Yacht Club offers sailing less than 15 minutes drive from the city centre. We look forward to welcoming you to our friendly club.

Charles Morton, Commodore

Royal Forth Yacht Club enjoys a dramatic backdrop of Edinburgh castle and access straight on to open water, perfect for racing and cruising. Many scenic harbours and anchorages nearby give plenty of sailing destinations. 


Facilities for members include serviced moorings, ferry service and clubhouse with bar and showers. There is a full racing programme, cruising events plus training and social events. We have an active cadets section with training for younger members.

During the summer we run bi-weekly Open Sailing sessions, aimed primarily at non-members who want to give sailing a try and find out more about the club. These are every other Thursday, starting at 1730. See the events calendar or the facebook page for details of the next event.

We welcome visiting yachts and visitors can lie alongside the pontoons, which allow 24-hour all tide access. See the visitors page for more information.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would be interested in joining the club. Ordinary membership is £175 for the first year with reductions for families, students and juniors.
