Port Edgar Yacht Club
Port Edgar Yacht Club offers a fantastic programme of racing and cruising for yachts and dinghies on the east coast of Scotland. If you don't have your own boat the Club has negotiated special dinghy hire rates with Port Edgar Watersports and it can also introduce you to boat owners looking for crew.
The Club owns two yachts available for hire to members and organises sailing events almost every day with the exception of Fridays, from April to August and every weekend from September to December. There are discounts for first time members.
Queensferry Rowing Club
The Queensferry Rowing Club is based at Port Edgar. It welcomes people of all ages and abilities and offers free taster sessions for anyone looking to get started with rowing. Every week, all year round, the Club takes to the water in its two boats, Ferry Lass and Ferry Maid, which were built by members. It is also part of the larger Scottish Coastal Rowing community and competes in a number of annual regattas across Scotland.
Newcomers are welcome to attend the regular sessions (tides permitting):
- Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm (except in winter)
- Saturdays from 9am
- Sundays from 1pm

Edinburgh Powerboat Club
New for 2021 the Edinburgh Boat Club is designed to offer members exclusive access to brand new powerboats, fitted out with the most up to date safety and navigation equipment. The Boat Club is the perfect solution for those who would like to have access to a powerboat in the Firth of Forth, and treat their family, friends and colleagues to memorable and exhilarating days out on the water without the responsibility of purchasing, maintaining, and berthing their own vessel.
The Boat Club team will be on hand to offer day to say support to members on all aspects of boating, such as passage planning, manoeuvres, or safety techniques. Further, every level membership includes a number of training courses for you or your family to ensure that your boating knowledge and skills continue to develop during your time with the Boat Club.
The boat is supplied to you fully fuelled at the start of each day, and apart from replacing the fuel that you use and paying for any damage incurred on your trip (outside normal wear and tear), there are no hidden costs outside the annual membership fee. The Boat Club team will be responsible for all aspects of boat management, insurance and maintenance, so all members need to do is book their desired days, use the boat, and return it at the end of the day.
All boats will be berthed from the well serviced and safe Port Edgar Marina in South Queensferry which is the perfect location for training, developing and then using as a staging point before going on day trips on the Firth of Forth.
