A junior and youth training program runs at both Loch of Skene and Stonehaven and includes a very popular junior training week during the summer school holidays.
Racing at the Loch of Skene is from early March until the end of May. Boats are parked on the grassy edge of the loch with the start line a few minutes sail away. The loch provides excellent sailing conditions with lack of tides and waves providing an ideal beginners environment, however it can be a bit chilly in early March and those capsizing might find their mast stuck in bottom of the shallow loch!
Special events include the Easter Egg pursuit race on Easter Sunday, the Skene Regatta and the Junior Regatta.
Racing is out in Stonehaven bay with boats launching from slipways on the beach in Stonehaven harbour. Sailing is very different from the Loch of Skene with a much larger sailing area, tides and waves of varying sizes!
Special events include the annual Catterline race down the coast to the village of Catterline and the Commodore’s trophy. The clubs annual regatta is held at Stonehaven in the second half of August.
