Cramond Boat Club Review

The Cramond Boat Club is located at the mouth of the River Almond, just four miles from the bustling centre of Edinburgh. Our Clubhouse and moorings provide a welcoming home for a variety of small craft, from dinghies to small cruisers and motorboats.

The River Almond offers tidal access to the Firth of Forth for approximately 5 hours each tide, making it an ideal location for sailing enthusiasts. The Club hosts dinghy and keelboat racing on a handicap basis, with class racing organized when numbers allow. Additionally, we hold open regattas and long-distance races throughout the season.

The waters of the Firth of Forth offer a picturesque setting for pleasure sailing, with numerous islands, sheltered harbours, and iconic landmarks such as the Forth Bridge, Inchcolm Abbey, Cramond Island, Inchkeith, the Isle of May, Aberdour, and South Queensferry.

Whether you're a seasoned sailor or a novice looking to explore the beauty of the Scottish coast, the Cramond Boat Club welcomes you to experience the thrill of the open water.

    I'm a freelance writer and avid sailor who loves to share my passion for the sea with others. I've written articles for various sailing magazines and websites, covering topics such as sailing destinations, boat maintenance, navigational tips, and marine wildlife. I went on a short sailing trip whilst on holiday as a child and was instantly hooked. I've been sailing ever since. Although I've done a fair amount of lake sailing in my time, my real passion is the ocean. I hope you enjoy reading this blog about sailing as much as I've enjoyed writing about it.
