Welcome to the Cramond Boat Club, situated at the mouth of the River Almond, only 4 miles from the centre of Edinburgh.
We cater for all types of small craft, including dinghies, small cruisers and motorboats. The Club organises dinghy and keelboat racing, open regattas, cruises and family fun days.
The Cramond Boat Club is an RYA Recognised Training Centre and is approved for training Club members in the RYA National Sailing and Power Boating schemes.
The clubhouse includes changing rooms, workshop and storage as well as a bar and function room.
Yesterday we had another cracking sailing day with a lovely north easterly breeze giving some excellent sailing & racing. With a Cruiser Race, Dinghy Race Autumn 4 and Cadet training there was a lot going on at the club and a lot of big smiles after an excellent days sailing. Once again many thanks to all the safety boat crews and coaches. More »
