Welcome to Aberdour Boat Club’s website.  The Club is situated in the attractive Fife village of Aberdour, on the north shore of the Firth of Forth. The harbour – though tidal – is an excellent base for exploring the Firth and the islands, skerries and tides provide for interesting boating!


The Club was founded in 1930 and has always encouraged boating of all kinds – canoes, rowing, power boats and sailing. We have an active racing and cruising programme and the village's annual Regatta is one of the biggest events of the Forth. Our small and attractive Clubhouse, conveniently located at the root of the pier plays host to a busy social programme throughout the year.


The Club membership is just over 100 and runs very much on a self-help basis. The club is affiliated to both the Royal Yachting Association and the Forth Yacht Clubs Association.


This website is for general information, but particularly for members to keep them up-to-date with club events and plans. We're always looking to improve our site and the Webmaster welcomes all suggestions.


For general queries including membership applications, please contact the Club Secretary. For Clubhouse bookings, please contact the Clubhouse Convenor and for more specific queries, please contact me, the Secretary or any other member of the Committee (see the Contact us page).


Happy sailing!

Dave Stewart, Commodore
