Fairlie Yacht Club Boat Shed Logo

Fairlie Yacht Club has a very active racing community. We are very keen to encourage more members to take up racing with initiatives like the restricted sail class to ease the learning curve - give it a try!

You will need to make sure you have insurance for racing risks, a sail number, and a CYCA handicap.

Midweek Racing takes place on Tuesday evenings at Fairlie/Largs, and Thursday evenings at Kip. There are six weekend Musters, with seven associated Passage Races. Details will be posted below once available.

There is a £50 race fee for all midweek points series at Fairlie. This Fee also includes Passage Races, the Autumn Points Series, and a second copy of the Yearbook
Kip midweek racing will be in Pursuit Race format in 2018, and will be free to members. Non members are welcome to participate, subject to a £10 per series entry fee. This fee will be offset against Membership Subscription if subsequently joining the Club.
A fee of £25 is payable for participation in Passage Races only, in 2018. This will include a second Yearbook copy.

We would like to invite you and your crew to the Ice Breaker Regatta and Training Weekend to be held at Clyde Marina, Ardrossan.

Fairlie Yacht Club is the organising Club, in association with Sponsors Clyde Marina Ltd, and Brugal Rum. The Club is grateful for the additional assistance given by RYAS and the Scottish Sailing Institute.

This event is OPEN to all members of RYA affiliated clubs.

The main aim of the Regatta is to help you get your boat and crew in shape before the race season on the Clyde. It will also be a good chance for you all to sample one of the best patches of water in Scotland.

To help us run the event we are enlisting some of the best coaching staff in Britain. Briefing/debriefing sessions with video feedback will be conducted ashore, and advice on tactics, deck work and sail/rig setting will be given on the water.

Entry forms and Sailing instructions will be posted for download in due course.
