RIBS, Canoes, Kayaks, Paddleboards – all watersport enthusiasts welcome!

Although we are called the “Royal Forth Yacht Club”, we welcome anyone who wants to participate in any form of watersport.

Many of our members have dinghies, motorboats, and RIBs, and some have canoes and kayaks.

Over the summer we can provide secure storage with easy access to the sea for kayaks, canoes and paddle boards, and have safe moorings available for RIBs and motorboats. So if you want a good base for your RIB, canoe, paddle board, or anything else that floats, get in touch, and see if our facilities are right for you!
