Historical Details

Founded in:
1952

History:
The club is easily located from seaward, being immediately to the west of a large new industrial shed of Alexander Anderson’s saw dust works, above a concrete sea wall. A flag mast with cross trees, yacht masts, moorings in the bay, small pier and gap in the sea wall for our slip help locate the site. The club name is displayed in large letters on the clubhouse roof. Our clubhouse is a compartment cut from the ss Ben Cleuch when she was broken at P&W McLellan, Bo’ness. Crane bases and other remains of “The Ship Breaking” can be seen on the foreshore immediately to the east of the bay. The club yard has a railway system for boat launching, recovery and storage, a huge asset for ease of handling yachts and managing costs, giving independence from crane hire. A gantry, derrick and small workshop facilitate engine swaps, stepping masts and refits.
