Where is it?  Granton Harbour, Edinburgh

Who is it for?  All welcome!

Why should you come?

  • Want to try sailing?
  • Want to try power boating?
  • Want a day out by the water?
  • Fun for all the family, young or old!
  • Have a great day out by the sea, at Edinburgh’s Granton Harbour.

What is it about?

Each year sailing clubs affiliated to the RYA run open days which attract large numbers of people.  This year RFYC is joining them with the express aim of inspiring more people to take up sailing and join the Club. See the Poster and Event Calendar entry.

It should be a fun day out for all the family.  Take advantage of the opportunity to try the various types of boats under the control and guidance of experienced crew.  This could be a sailing dinghy, a little topper, one of the power boats or a larger cruising boat.
