Try Sailing with RFYC

Open Sailing is your opportunity to try out sailing with the Royal Forth Yacht Club. There are 6 ‘open sailing’ evenings planned for the 2019 season and these are intended to give people a chance to sail on a cruising yacht to see whether sailing is for them, and to encourage new members to the club.

If you would like to attend on any of these evenings then just turn up with warm and waterproof clothing at 17:30 on any of the listed dates. Life jackets will be provided.

The 6 dates for the 2019 season are: June 6th, June 20th, July 4th, July 25th, August 8th & August 22nd. It would be helpful if, before attending, you contacted the club to advise of your wish to attend, as that helps us to manage numbers and organise the events more efficiently. If none of these dates suit then get in touch with the club and we will try to accommodate you on another date. You can click here to email us directly.
