open day | 11 June 2022

There's never been a better time to join the Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club!

Join us at our Open Day on Saturday 11 June 2022, from 10:00 to 15:00.

The Open Day is for kids and adults of all abilities who want to try sailing in our racing and cruising boats. You will alo have the opportunity to try Coastal Rowing in the club's skiff Join us for a chat over tea/coffee, or a bar lunch, see our historic clubhouse and find out what we've got to offer.

This year, to give you more time out on the water trying out different sailing activities, we're offering "Social Sailing" - these taster sessions will run on certain Friday evenings and Sundays with a couple of hours sailing followed by supper in our historic clubhouse.

The emphasis will be on having fun on the water, meeting our club sailors, learning some new sailing techniques (beginners welcome) and trying out different types of boats and sailing or racing disciplines.

All you need is warm, waterproof clothing and suitable footwear (we'll provide buoyancy aids) - what are you waiting for? 


Join us for the Open Day and you will have the opportunity to get out on the water on one of our nine club-owned Sonars or privately owned historic Gareloch One Designs, under the expert supervision of our experienced instructors and members.
Our Sonar and Gareloch fleets sail Tuesday evenings and weekends, and our Cadet programme (8-18 year olds) runs on Thursday evenings.


We are an RYA-accredited training centre, and run sailing courses for young people and adults in dinghies and keelboats over the course of the year.


As you gain skills and experience, you'll have the opportunity to take part in top-level regattas - in recent years, we have raced in the UK, the United States and Ireland. In addition our members have competed in World Championships and the Olympics!

Our club caters for everyone with an interest in sailing and Coastal Rowing:

  • complete beginners, whatever your age

  • experienced dinghy racers looking to transition to keelboat racing

  • cruising sailors looking to improve sail and boat trim to achieve faster boat speed, or interested in taking advantage of our mooring facilities and a launch service -  a very cost-effective way of keeping your boat on the water.

We welcome new members - if you're interested in joining the Club please come and visit us to find out more about the benefits of membership.

Otherwise just turn up on the day (starting at 10.00, last admission 14.00), dress sensibly and we'll do the rest.
