About the Club

Since it was founded in 1991 Craignish Boat Club has helped to teach 150 children how to sail.

In recent years CBC cadets have participated in national school competitions and junior members have participated in national training squads. Craignish Boat Club cadets have qualified as RYA Sailing Instructors and have returned to assist in the running of the club.

The Club’s Paddlesports section has also been a great success – Scottish Canoe Association Club of the Year 2016!

In 2014 we moved to our new site on Eilean Traighte, which allowed us to build sheds and racks for the boats, parking, seating and toilets for Members and visitors, and a slipway and pontoon.

Over the years we have built up our stock of boats and equipment, and we now have 10 Optimists, 8 Toppers and 3 Lazers; assorted dinghies and 6 safety/rescue boats.

This is just as well, as in 2017 we had our largest Cadet sections ever, with 42 sailing cadets, and 28 kayaking cadets!

As a community organisation, our activities extend well beyond the water. Each year we hold fundraisers as well as social events like our annual Ceilidh and Prize Giving in the Craignish Village Hall, to which all are welcome.
