Membership gives access to all of the sailing and social activities in the club, as well as the option of applying for a fully serviced mooring in Granton Harbour, with water taxi service.
For boat owners:
Once you’ve joined, we can finalise arrangements for your boat.
Mooring and yard storage
Drying swinging moorings are available in the east harbour.
There is a waiting list for moorings in the West Harbour (which doesn’t dry out), and boats that were in the west harbour the previous year are given priority for these.
2017 summer prices for moorings, use of the club’s pillar crane, and yard storage are given on the relevant forms:
Members also get preferential rates for using the pontoon on the east side of the pier to the north of the clubhouse. This pontoon is owned and managed by Edinburgh Marinas Ltd, an operating company jointly owned by RFYC and our neighbours, the Forth Corinthian Yacht Club.
Lift-in and lift-out arrangements
Dinghies, kayaks and small motor boats can be launched and recovered using the club’s slipway, free of charge provided the appropriate membership and yard storage dues have been paid.
Boats up to 5 Tonnes can, if their dimensions allow, use the club’s pillar crane. This can be hired for a single operation or with a season pass as set out in the Mooring and Club Crane form.
Larger boats are hoisted in and out using a contract crane on designated lift-in and lift-out days. The contract crane cost is split between the owners of boats lifted in or out.
In 2017, lift-in is 24th April and lift-out is 18th October.
Masts must be removed prior to lift-out and when boats are stored in the yard. A mast hoist is attached to the pillar crane and may be used by members at no cost, subject to booking a time slot.
Moorings are available from lift-in to lift-out. It may be possible to access your mooring before lift-in by arrangement with the Mooring Secretary.
