Latest News from NSC.

With much reluctance but with every consideration for current circumstances and RYA/Government guidelines we have decided to postpone the commencement of this year’s sailing season until government advice changes..


We are awaiting the latest update from the Scottish Government which is expected on Thursday 28th May. In preparation for any change to the current situation a new COVID-19 committee made up of Roger Horner, Jim Allan, Bryan Cruickshank and Simon Richards has been formed to identify possible ways to get out on the water in an appropriate and safe manner. If you have any suggestions or comments on how a return to sailing could be achieved then please contact one of the committee. Contact details are on the Contacts page here

Keep an eye on our Facebook page also for further updates as well as this website.

Happening this month.


The club is closed given the current situation but please see Latest News for updates

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 a list of email addresses and other details for more information.
