Wondered anyone had any insight into sailing in Scotland

Active classes locally or those with a regional travellers series?

Thanks.

Lots around the area. East Lothian at North Berwick is an active dinghy club, Portobello has a dinghy club, Royal Forth at Granton is mainly keel boats but has some dinghy activity. West of the city Port Edgar at South Queensferry has a marina with PEYC sialing dinghies and keelboats. Across the Forth, Dalgety Bay is a very active dinghy club and popular with many from the Edinbugh side of the Forth. East of Dalgety there are quite a few clubs of which Largo Bay is possibly the next active dinghy club.
There is a fairly well established dinghy circuit in Scotland. Lasers, RS200, RS400 and skiffs are probably the most active travellers series, but other classes have their own travellers as well. The D-Zeros are growing in Scotland but club fleets are so far limited to a few pockets (mainly Largs on the Clyde)

Please feel free to join the Scottish Dinghy FB page where you'll get lots of (naturally biased) pointers on what and where to sail https://www.facebook.com/groups/468655580187984" rel="nofollow - https://www.facebook.com/groups/468655580187984

Lots of D-Zeros going north of the border and fleets are growing nicely, Nationals at Largs next year as well. Boats at Aberdeen and Stonehaven and Dalgety Bay. Bigger fleets are on the west coast but the east is starting to catch up.
