The Clyde Cruising Club was formed in 1909 with the object of encouraging cruising, cruising races and the social side of sailing. Although there are many other yacht clubs on the Clyde and West Coast of Scotland none of them cater specifically for the cruising yachtsmen.
The club also has an active dinghy section. The Club Trust owns Bardowie Loch where the Dinghy Section has a clubhouse and a fleet of GP14, Optimist and Laser sailing dinghies and challenger trimarans. Points racing series are run on specific evenings during the season and the Club championship finals are held in September each year.
The members are given tuition in sailing and seamanship and must pass the Club test before taking charge of a Club dinghy. A crew list is maintained so that some cadets can be invited to gain experience on member’s yachts. Board sailing takes place at Bardowie and the competition is keen. Instruction is given in this sport by members. The Optimist dinghies are available for the younger members.
The objects of the club are to encourage cruising and cruising races and foster the social side of sailing on the Firth of Clyde and elsewhere and to do such things as may be considered desirable to promote the interests of yachting generally.
