Boats

Training is a vital part of the club's activities and, to support this, the club owns a number of boats. With the exception of the two Stratos, which can only be taken out for training purposes by one of the club's qualified RYA instructors, members are welcome to use the boats until they decide what type of boat they would like to buy.  There is a charge for the use of club boats (free for under 18s and members recently through the club training course)

These include:

  • Laser Stratos - excellent training boat which has plenty to offer more experienced sailors as well.
  • Laser Picos - fun and friendly singlehander which can also cope with two small adults
  • Toppers - super singlehander for a child or small adult


Members are, of course, encouraged to have their own boat and, at the moment, the fleet consists of Laser Is and Laser IIs, Solo, Scorpion, GP14 .

Treating yourself to a new sailing dinghy can cost many thousands of pounds but a thriving second hand market in Scotland means you could take to the water in your own craft from as little as a few hundred pounds upwards.
