Dinghy racing is a tremendous way to improve your abilities while having lots of fun at the same time.

One of Kinghorn Sailing Club's greatest assets is the spread of talent amongst its members - ranging from novice sailors to Scottish level racers.

This means, no matter what level of ability you have, there is bound to be someone with whom you can have a close race with and swap notes at the end of the day.

The bulk of the club's racing takes place between October and May on Kinghorn Loch and is open to non-club members.

The small, tricky loch attracts all skill levels and people from as far afield as Edinburgh and Linlithgow.

The other huge attraction about the winter series is that, unlike virtually every other club in Scotland, Kinghorn doesn't take a break over the winter period. For keen sailors, this means they can get the practise they need to make a big impact on the Scottish sailing circuit when spring arrives whilst, for beginners, they have more opportunities to practise their skills.

Racing also takes place on scheduled days on the Forth during the summer.
