Newburgh Sailing Club
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.
Clubhouse has Ladies and Gents changing facilities, with hot showers, fitted kitchen
with hot and cold running water and full cooking facilities, a large reception area
that enjoys uninterrupted panoramic views across the Tay, and an OD’s box above and
to the centre of the clubhouse.
There is a sheltered dinghy park behind and below the clubhouse with spaces for some
30 - 50 boats depending on size. We mainly sail dinghies although there are a few
day boats too.
The Club has a fairly large fleet of Jack Holt design Solo’s which has been steadily
expanding in size in recent years, 2011 saw an Albacore campaigned at the club very
successfully. The Oppie fleet is on the move too. We have a hardcore element that
enjoy racing on a regular basis and an encouragingly growing cadet membership we
also have a good base of members who prefer to cruise and potter about the water
for enjoyment, whatever your pleasure on the water or assisting ashore as support
crew we are sure we can accommodate your preference.
