About Us

The Royal Forth Yacht Club has been in existence since 1868.  It incorporates the Royal Eastern Yacht Club (founded in 1835) and the Almond Yacht Club (founded in 1897).  As such it is the oldest sailing club on the Firth of Forth.

Royal Forth Yacht Club enjoys a dramatic backdrop of Edinburgh castle and access straight on to open water, perfect for racing. Though mostly drying there is a wealth of scenic harbours for day sailing along the Fife coast.

Members’ benefits include serviced moorings and ferry service as well as boat storage in a secured yard.  We have a modern  Clubhouse with a part time bar, which also provides meals and there are male and female showers available at a small charge. There is a full racing programme for yachts and dinghies, training and social events. More information can be found on the pages of this website.

We welcome visiting yachts and visitors can lie alongside the pontoons, which are currently being dredged to allow 24-hour access.

Please do contact us if you have any questions or would be interested in joining the Club.

You will find the application form and other membership information on the “how to join us” page. It should be completed and sent to the club together with the appropriate fee. Early processing of applications will be arranged as a matter of course.
