    As summer comes in I’ve been asked by our Committee to let you know that your members are warmly invited to call in at Blackness. We are always pleased to see visitors and you will find a ready welcome. Our comfortable clubhouse has the usual facilities, including a well stocked bar. It offers panoramic views of the upper Forth. Blackness Castle is a few minutes’ walk away. During the sailing season the clubhouse is usually open but it’s a good idea to call the Commodore or Harbour Master in advance, particularly if you are coming from some distance away or where a number of boats are sailing together. 

    Boats can lie alongside the pier for 2.5 – 3 hrs either side of high water, depending on the state of the tide. In settled weather yachts can berth at the pier over more than one tide. At HWS there is approximately 3 metres of water at the pier, less at other times. There are usually club members around to take lines and give a hand with tying up but again it’s a good idea to get in touch with the Harbour Master before arrival. There is a slipway for landing from tenders for those who prefer to moor in the bay. Blackness Bay dries out so is suitable only for bilge keelers and yachts with lifting keels.

    The Committee is keen to encourage visitors to make Blackness one of their destinations and we look forward to seeing some of you over the summer.
