Sailing from Port Edgar, South Queensferry gives immediate access to a very under rated sailing area. The Forth Bridges arc majestically over the river providing a gateway to the Firth and its many islands and small harbours, our courses will normally call at Granton, Dunbar or Pittenweem and anchor off Fidra, Inchkieth or one of the many picturesque villages. When conditions permit Eyemouth, the Tay and Bell rock are all within reach.
