Newburgh Sailing Club Sailing on for 66 Years in 2024 NSC Home NSC Home

The club operates three rescue boats, two RIB and one rigid depending on how many boats are out. The RIB is ideally suited to higher speed operation in rougher weather. Secure covered winter storage is available from the club currently costing a rather insignificant sum.

The club is an RYA approved training centre and runs introductory sailing courses, intermediate sailing, powerboat and rescue boat. Club members are expected to train for the latter two courses and share with rescue boat duties.

The National Solo is a classic, one-design,

 we have a fleet of around 5-10 boats.  

Newburgh Sailing Club is very much family orientated. BBQ’s and social events are held throughout the year. Kids fun days are always a big hit with the members. Its sometimes hard to tell the Cadets apart !.

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.

The 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.

There are many craft using the river, some present a challenge to navigation, some require extreme respect.
