The Royal Forth Yacht Club
We are based in Granton Harbour, just ten minutes from Edinburgh’s city centre. For our boat owning members we maintain swinging moorings in the harbour and our yard provides winter storage for them.The waters of the Firth of Forth, just outside the harbour entrance, are comparable with any for holding major regattas as well as running a packed club racing programme each season for yachts and dinghies.
The east coast of Scotland is not recognised as highly as it should be as a cruising ground but our members sail the coast north and south and of course northern Europe and the Baltic are only a short hop across the North Sea. The Club is an RYA Recognised Training Establishment and conducts a number of courses throughout the year as well as regular training evenings throughout the season. We also own a number of modern dinghies that are available for our members use.
