- In view of the current situation with regard to Covid 19, the Board of Toward Sailing Club (SCIO) have reluctantly taken the decision that the start of this year’s sailing and kayaking season must be postponed.
- In the immediate future, this will mean that the forthcoming Work party, Open Day, Beach Clean and Regatta have been cancelled. Racing and training will also be postponed until further notice.
- In terms of kayaking, the pool session is cancelled and meetings/training postponed. Latest advice from SCA is to cancel any large scale events and risk asses any paddling activity. As a result there are no plans to meet or to undertake club paddles.
- The Board are confident that “normal service” will be renewed later in the year and, since the club will still have ongoing expenses, urge all members to renew their membership as soon as possible.
Welcome to Toward Sailing Club, Toward, Argyll, Scotland
Toward Sailing Club is situated at the southern- most point of the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll. It is located about 8 miles south of Dunoon on the A815 – approximately one and a half hours travel from Glasgow and provides access to some of the best sailing and sea kayaking waters in the country.
The club calendar reflects the varied interests of the members with everything from ceilidhs to cruises, racing and training, along with our section of sea kayakers who also offer training/coaching and various trips and lectures. Be sure to check out the news page for all the latest updates.
The clubhouse is situated on the shore of the Clyde estuary opposite the scenic Isle of Bute, with easy access to the water for trailers, sailors, dinghies, power boats and sea kayaks.
Professionally maintained moorings are provided by the club for its members, while those members without a boat of their own can sail one of the club’s fleet of Topper, Pico and Optimist dinghies. We also have a range of club owned sea kayaks available for member use.
The area immediately off the club provides excellent racing conditions for both dinghies and keel boats. Racing is open to all members including junior members and takes place on Thursdays throughout the season and Sundays at the beginning and end of the season. Toward Sailing Club is also a RYA Training Centre offering training to both adults and juniors. Those who prefer sea kayaking can head out to a wide range of destinations depending on experience and ability.
Toward Sailing Club is on the doorstep to a real adventure!
