Royal Forth Yacht Club
Watersports at Granton

Joining In…

We welcome everyone to join us, complete beginners to experienced skippers and crew.

We can help crew find boats and skippers find crew.  If you are interested just email the office.

We sail from April through to October. Most of the club’s boats stay on swinging moorings in Granton Harbour.  We have a boatman facility 7 days per week to take people out to their moored boats. Hours vary as tides allow.

We have a busy calendar of events each season, both club and open events. Racing takes place midweek evenings every other week, most Saturdays and some Sundays. See the racing events schedule or the sailing instructions for more details.

Open Sailing

We have open cruising on Thursday evenings, as tides allow, roughly every second week, starting at 1730. These are aimed primarily at non-members who want to give sailing a try and find out more about the club. See the events calendar or the facebook page for details of the next event.

Social events

We often have social events after racing / cruising events, these are held regularly in the clubhouse and promoted on the website and notices around the club.

Volunteering

A great way to meet other members of the club is to volunteer to help on the committee boat or on RIBs during races and regattas. There are lots of other jobs that require help from volunteers. Previous experience is not always necessary and training is given when required.

If you’re interested have a look at the varied roles we need volunteers to help out with and contact the office.
