Royal Forth Yacht Club, in Edinburgh, are hosting the Squib UK National Championships from 15 to 21 June 2024.
RFYC Rear-Commodore Will Davies expanded on this news: “We are very much looking forward to giving a warm Scottish welcome to fellow UK and Irish Squib sailors and their families. This event was last held in Scotland, in Dundee, in 1998 so it’s time to dust of your tartan and head north of the border once again or for the first time! More details of the event will follow, but in the meantime, save the date and start looking forward to what will be a fantastic event both on and off the water.”
Edinburgh is located by the Forth, on the East coast of Scotland, with easy access by road. Competitors will enjoy six days of fantastic racing on excellent waters, with the courses less than 10 minutes from the harbour mouth. Berthing will be on pontoons and launching/recovery will be via our efficient shoreside cranes.
Off the water you can look forward to a variety of entertaining organised social events at our clubhouse, plus we will give you the opportunity to explore some the many things that Edinburgh has to offer, be that local whisky or ales, golf courses, historic tours/galleries, plus many restaurants and nightclubs! There will be something for everyone and all within 3 miles from the clubhouse.
There is an abundance of accommodation available in the city to suit a wide variety of budgets and we will be communicating more details of what and where in due course.
There will be plenty of options available as we will not be racing during the Scottish or English school holidays, nor the famous Edinburgh Festival or Hogmanay celebrations,
