Sailing, kayaking and rowing at Edinburgh's seaside
A friendly and active club on the shores of the Firth of Forth, a few miles from the centre of Edinburgh and in the heart of the thriving community of Portobello.
Our base is a small dinghy park on the Portobello Promenade near the bottom of Bath Street. Here we store members' boats and our safety boats. Although we have no changing rooms on site, members can use the Portobello Swim Centre facilities for a small charge.
Sailing: We have a diverse dinghy fleet including both racing and cruising craft. We race most Sunday afternoons over the season. We have a small number of club boats which can be used by suitably qualified members.
Kayaking: Members' boats include sea kayaks and open canoes, and the club has two kayaks and two sit on tops for which can be used by suitably qualified members.
Rowing: Portobello is one of the largest coastal rowing clubs in Scotland. Rowing takes place every weekend - and most evenings during the summer. See our separate rowing website for details.
Junior members are welcome. Wednesday evenings are devoted to children's sailing and kayaking, giving children a chance to try new activities and develop their skills.
Social: Organised social activities include a club barbeque in the summer and a winter ceilidh. Race days often end in the Espy bar and the rowing section meets regularly in the Dalriada. An opt in email list allows members to contact one another to seek crew, and offer to crew, or to arrange cruises etc.
