Welcome to the Dundee Sailing Club

Hello and a warm welcome to the Dundee Sailing Club. IMGP3263Established in 1979, we sail from Grassy Beach on the Tay at Broughty Ferry, Dundee. We are a family friendly sailing club, making sailing accessible and affordable to the whole community.  We are open to new members of all abilities. Members are mainly interested in pleasure sailing and improving their sailing skills but, for those that want to, there are 2 series of racing through the season.

We sail a range of traditional dinghies, though mainly the Wayfarer, a versatile and stable boat ideal for beginners and families, but also good for competitive racing and longer cruises.

Have a look below at some pictures from our sailing adventures or check out our Photo Gallery and our list of Adventures for a taste of what our sailing programme includes.

Guests are welcome to come and try sailing - we have waterproofs and buoyancy aids to fit all sizes. A temporary day membership "sailing taster" voucher can be purchased for £25 here. Just check our sailing program for a suitable date and book a taster session. Please contact the club as per the voucher details in advance of any booking to make sure we can accommodate you on the day so you gain the best experience. 

If you or your family would like to join, the annual fees are £140 (individual) and £200 (family); the £25 of the voucher will count towards the cost of your membership. A range of club boats are available for member's use and a boat park for summer and winter storing of your a personal sailing dinghy is included in the membership fee, though space is limited and on a first come first serve basis. 

We have basic training on a Tuesday Evening, local sailing on a Thursday evening and longer cruises mainly on a Sunday with the odd overnight away sail thrown in for good measure. The Summer season normally starts in April and finishes in October, while there is Winter series racing with RTYC. If the weather is good then the more seasoned sailors will organise local sailing over the winter period. 

New for 2021 we have the Eider Duck Rowing Skiff which members are able to use all year round. This is a great form of regular exercise and builds great team work.
