Latest News from NSC.

Newburgh Sailing Club have endorsed an updated COVID-19 return to sailing strategy document for use in the club as of 7th July. This was developed by the club COVID-19 Committee. A copy can be found by clicking here. The changes from the previous policy are highlighted in the document. There is also an associated risk assessment document found here.

All sailing and racing must be following the updated COVID strategy document requirements. Access to toilets at the club is available in line with Government and RYA guidelines. Please review the COVID documents and comply with all the requirements set out in it. If you wish to socially sail then we are recommending that you put a shout out on the club  Facebook page so that other members can be aware and potentially be available as a sailing buddy or safety boat cover. Keep an eye on our Facebook page also for further updates as well as this website.

Welcome to the Newburgh Sailing Club website

Newburgh Sailing Club is situated in northern Fife on the south shores of the river Tay, along the A913 between Perth to the West and Newport-on-Tay to the east. The Club enjoys stunning views up and down the river and across the valley over Mugdrum Island in the centre of the river, which happens to be one of the largest reed beds in Europe and home to much wildlife.

Sailing in the Brackish waters at Newburgh can prove to be both exhilarating and challenging, both from difficult wind sheer created by the trees and rolling hillsides behind the club, and wind blowing down the valley, not to mention a fairly misleading tidal current. All adding to the attraction of sailing in these beautiful surroundings.

We offer sailing opportunities for all ages and backgrounds. Within the website you will find information on our training courses, regular racing and other activities. If you want to get more information then look through our site or go to our contacts page  for more information.

Cadet Sailing Course 2020

The course is hoped to run from Monday 3rd August to Friday 7th August 2020. We will review government guidance and confirm it it will go ahead over the next two weeks. If the event occurs then on Friday 7th  we will be having an Awards Ceremony at approximately 7.00 pm. The minimum age for the course is 5 years 6 months.  We are planning on offering courses to suit all standards from total beginners (which way round does this go?) to the hugely experienced (splash!). Students do not have to be swimmers to take part. For more details, contact John Cameron via email at jcameron1952@hotmail.com.
