Winter Talks 2024

We have a number of evening events planned whilst the nights are still fairly long:

Friday 1 March – Anna Gebruk (Tyche) will be talking about Walruses in Spitzbergen

Friday 29 March –  Paul Taylor (Hirta) and David Cox (Moonshine) on sailing from Puerto Rico to Scotland

All talks will be at Trinity Bowling Club. Doors open at 7 for 7:30 start.


Upcoming Event – Jan 13th

We will start the New Year with a workshop to discuss the forthcoming sailing season and also to discuss harbour issues including the impact of Storm Babet and the 2024 lift-in (including lessons learned from lifting boats out with masts up).

This will be on Saturday 13th January in the Bell Block. The programme will be:

1130 Introduction and discussion of sailing programme – briefing by Sailing Secretary

1200 Impact of Storm Babet and improving resilience – briefing by harbour team

1245 Lift in and lessons learned – briefing by harbour team

1300 onwards – harbour work party and yard cleanup

Please come along and join in – a lot of work goes into both the sailing programme and the harbour activities and we should recognise the efforts that are made on our behalf.


Christmas Party Time Again

Ahoy Corinthians!

It’s not long now until the always eagerly awaited FCYC Christmas Party and Prizegiving!

6:30pm on Saturday 9th December at Trinity Bowling Club, 

Lomond Road, Edinburgh 

After the prizegiving there will be a raffle, food, party games, and of course our ever popular FCYC Christmas Song. And the bar is open till 11pm! 



Great news is that we’ve now successfully installed a defibrillator at the top of the ramp down to the pontoon. Thanks to Sue Martin and her team and St John’s Ambulance Scotland.
