Aberdeen and Stonehaven Yacht Club (ASYC) is based in the northeast of Scotland. Dinghy sailors make up most of the membership, though there is a small cruising section with moorings in the tidal harbour at Stonehaven. The club provides dinghy sailing opportunities at both inland and open sea venues during the year. From March to the end of May the club sails on the freshwater Loch of Skene, 10 miles west of Aberdeen. At the beginning of June the club''s activities move to the more challenging North Sea coastal waters at Stonehaven, 15 miles south of Aberdeen, where sailing takes place until mid-November.
