Our membership is mainly dinghies with a few dayboats out on moorings. We welcome all abilities as long as they have an interest in sailing. In recent years the Solo fleet has expanded to something like 13 boats.
The river is tidal and we sail about 2 hours each side of high water.
We always manage several cruises throughout the year and often sail upriver and take a picnic to places like Inchyra where there is a Civil Service Boat Club, to one of the old salmon stations or to Elcho Castle. It is also possible to sail quite far up the River Earn which joins the Tay just upriver from Newburgh. Cruises downriver to Dundee and beyond are also possible. Some of our more adventurous members have taken their small boats right round the coast via St Andrews to the East Neuk Fife harbours on the Firth Of Forth.
In recent years we have run successful 'Introduction to Sailing courses' which have helped increase our membership. We also run training courses for powerboat and rescue boat so that members can share the rescue boat duties.
