If you are completely new to sailing, you can come down to the loch for a chat (weekday evenings from April to October are best), or contact us.

When you are ready to give it a go, decide which membership level is best for your circumstances by looking at the options for dinghy section members here.

Then create an account and apply for evening lessons or a summer school week from the club calendar. Open a training event to see each level of tuition described and its availability stated. You can then select the appropriate level.

The costs that you can expect are the annual membership, the fees for any classes you book, and a small charge for the relevant log book for each person sailing. You may also need to purchase some kit. There is no charge for examinations, certificates, or the use of boats.

Membership fees must be paid before the start of classes.

On your first evening or summer school class please bring a completed training form (which are also available at Bardowie) and your kit.

If you need any help you can either contact the club secretary, Jennifer Rolland (by emailing office@clyde.org or phoning 0141 221 2774), or get in touch with the instructors at bardowie.instructor.team@gmail.com.
