The CCC Dinghy Section has been based at Bardowie Loch near Milngavie for 88 years. The site and the club have changed a great deal since then but the aims of the club are still the same; to provide members with the opportunity to dinghy sail, to learn to sail and to race. The club has a fleet of dinghies for use by members and a new club house opened in 2004 that provides a warm and comfortable shore base.
Bardowie has a well deserved reputation as a family friendly club: RYA evening classes are available to children and adults covering beginners through to budding racers during the weekday evenings. In the summer holidays the club runs a very successful summer school. Throughout the season there are activities such as open days, club regattas and class regattas.
The Thursday evening points series is the backbone of the Club’s racing calendar. A wide variety of boats are raced including the club Laser 2000s and Lasers, as well as privately owned boats such as Solos, National 12s, and Albacores.
Challenger trimarans and Hansa Access 303 dingies are available for physically challenged sailors.
The CCC Dinghy Section also offers its facilities and expertise to a diverse range of organisations to give adults and children a sailing experience. If you want to find out more about how your organisation can benefit from a sailing experience at Bardowie please contact us.
