About Edinburgh University Sailing Club

Founded in 1933 as the Edinburgh University Yacht Club, we are a well established club with lots to offer. The Sailing Club incorporates all areas of sailing including yachting, dinghy sailing and of course socials, all for varying levels of abilities. RYA courses are also offered from complete beginner level up to instructor courses.

We are one of the largest sports clubs within the university and our dinghy teams are the most successful teams in Scotland. They are also frequently seen at events down south of the border and doing impressively well. In 2010 Edinburgh became the first University north of Cambridge to win the British Universities Team Racing Championships. Since then we have competed at events throughout Britain and Ireland and in 2023 our First team finished 9th in the country in the BUSA Team Racing Finals. Our yachting teams are also making a great stand within Scotland and throughout the UK. All of our club sailing takes place at Loch Ore or right next to Edinburgh at Port Edgar Yacht Club.

We have a few membership options this year, so whether you are interested in racing, recreational sailing or just our amazing socials, there should be something for you! Check out our Join us page to learn more!
