Portobello’s community sea sports club

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. Based at on the Promenade at the bottom of Bath Street, members – with appropriate qualifications and experience – can use our sailing dinghies, kayaks and St Ayles rowing skiffs.

Members organise regular sessions for all three sports from Portobello beach and occasional trips further afield. We run training courses from time to time. We offer storage for members’ boats – no powered craft are permitted. Membership runs from 1 April and costs £40 per year for adults over 25, £20 for young adults (18-25) and £10 for juniors (under 18). There is no joining fee and everyone is welcome.

Lack of experience or equipment is no barrier to joining. We are a charity offering training and facilities to encourage people to participate in watersports. Members are encouraged to play an active role in the running of the club and its activities.

For information, we do not hire out sailing boats, kayaks or any other boats.
