Just next door to The Beach House is the Portobello Sailing and Kayaking Club. A charity, PSKC is a friendly and active club on the shores of the Firth of Forth. We organise regular sessions for all three sports from the beach. Every summer the club runs dinghy sailing and kayaking courses for children. On Sunday afternoons there is sailing with rescue boat cover (weather permitting) and dinghy racing. PSKC is also home to 'Rowporty'- except on the very wildest of days the 5 person St Ayles Rowing Skiffs are out on the water. Throughout the summer the skiffs go to regattas across Scotland. On the 10th June, Rowporty will be holding its own regatta on the beach in front of the boatyard.
Members - with appropriate qualifications and experience - can use our sailing dinghies, kayaks and rowing skiffs. We also offer storage for members' boats - no powered craft are permitted.
Membership runs from 1 April and costs £40 per year for adults, £10 for juniors (18 and under), and £95 for family membership, covering up to two adults and any children (18 and under) living at the same address. There is no joining fee and everyone is welcome.
Lack of experience or equipment is no barrier to joining. We are a charity offering training and facilities to encourage people to participate in watersports. Members are encouraged to play an active role in the running of the club and its activities.
