Kerwhip Cup

The last weekend in June saw an exciting 2 days of racing for the Kerwhip Cup. This is a 2 person boat series that has a total of 6 races over the weekend. This year we tried to pair a veteran sailor (and some were very veteran!) with a Cadet. Some exciting sailing ensued with the front of the racing dominated by the Tasers of Brian Cruickshank and Niamh McAllion battling it out with John Cameron and Jessica Combe. In the end Brian and Niamh were excellent over the two days and won the cup. Well done to them. John and Jessica came in second and third place went to Euan Mearns (or super cadet as he is now called :-)) and Martin Ramwell in the GP14. A special mention as well for Scott Ferguson (ably?) assisted by Rog Horner who came in fourth. Well done to all the sailors for what was a great set of races and many of the cadets showed the adults how it is done. You can see the final result here.

Happening this month.


Check out the fixture page here for timings.

The club AGM will be held on Zoom on Wednesday 17th November at 7pm.

See you on the water soon

Welcome to the Newburgh Sailing Club website

Newburgh Sailing Club is situated in northern Fife on the south shores of the river Tay, just off 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 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.
