We hope that you find our website informative and helpful.
The club runs on an informal basis, and encourages everyone to help each other on the loch or with any boating matters which may arise.
We run various activities throughout the season and we encourage our members to take an active role within the club.
The club was set up in 1984 for several reasons, the main being to improve and promote safety on the water, and to educate our members and the public regarding many aspects of boating etiquette.These reasons still stand today.
The committee looks forward to welcoming new and past members and appreciates input from any member which would improve the club.

Flood Prevention Barrier
The Flood Prevention Barrier will be installed at the top of the slipway on the afternoon of Sunday the 30th October.
Once it is in place, members who wish to launch or retrieve their boat must remove the barrier and reinstall it afterwards. Please note that the sections need to be replaced in the same order and orientation as they were originally.
Always Lock the Gate Immediately After Entry and Exit
New Lock on Boat Park Gate
The lock to the Boat Park gate has been changed. Members should have received their new key with their membership card following renewal.
Please put your old key in the box provided at the container as the old lock and keys can be sold on.
Please remember to carry your membership card when you use the boat park. For security reasons you may be asked to show it.
Clyde Dockyard Regulations, Speed Restrictions and Licences
All members should ensure they are familiar with regulations regarding entry and departure from the Clyde Dockyard. You can see a copy here.
There are also speed restrictions in place and anyone seeking to operate outwith these restrictions needs a licence from the Harbour Master Clyde. Details are available here.
Further details are on the Club Information page.
Restricted Area for Moorings
Members are reminded that the club rules state that moorings should not be laid within 200 yards of the top of the slipway.
This is to ensure members are able to launch and retrieve their vessels as easily as possible.
The following image shows the restricted area.
It is requested that any member who has a mooring in the restricted area arranges for it to be moved prior to the next season.
Use of the boat park
Club rule 1.12 states "Vessels in the boat park must not be used for residential purposes".
The club committee want to emphasise how important this rule is. Vessels must not be used for overnight accommodation whilst in the boatyard or on the pontoon.
Owners who wish to stay on-board overnight must tie up to a mooring buoy.
There are also no circumstances where it is acceptable to stay overnight in the boatyard unless part of the security or boatyard team.
It is, however, accepted that vehicles can be parked in the boatyard overnight whilst vessel owners and crew are out on the water.
Please ensure you are familiar with all the club rules.
