Learn to Sail
Aberdeen Stonehaven Yacht Club is an RYA recognised training centre. We extend a warm welcome to all who want to race, learn to sail or improve their sailing techniques. We also offer a variety of informal training for our members, including regular race coaching and youth training sessions.
Junior Sailing runs on Saturdays and Sundays from April - June with a Beginner group on Saturdays and an advanced/racing group on Sundays. Our annual Junior Sailing Week runs 1st to 5Th August 2017 at Stonehaven (dates may change).
As a RYA recognised training centre, we are keen to see our Junior Sailors racing both at ASYC and further afield. Check the website or contact Ditta Neumann (Ditta_Neumann@yahoo.co.uk) for more details, to sign up or to offer help and support to the programme.
Boats for rent
ASYC owns a fleet of dinghies, which are available for use by members. The fleet comprises:
- Lasers with both full and radial rigs
- RS Feva
There is a charge for using club boats of £5 for a single hander and £10 for a double hander, but under 18's are free.
Members who are unsure about rigging or sailing any of the club boats should consult a member of the committee.
The OOD must be informed if members are taking out club boats.

Our club is an open club and all new members will be made welcome. If you would like to join Aberdeen & Stonehaven Yacht Club, please complete a membership application form.
The membership year runs from 1 January to 31 December but you are welcome to join at any time during the year. All full members are expected to help with both rescue and OOD duties up to three times per year as the club cannot run without this support
