Welcome to the web site of Orkney Sailing Club, the principal sailing club in the Orkney Islands, off the north coast of Scotland.


Orkney Sailing Club welcomes all visitors to the port of Kirkwall whether in a visiting yacht or just a tourist in the Islands. Kirkwall is an ideal base for touring the numerous northern islands of Orkney or a stop off en-route for Shetland or Norway.  There are five special mooring buoys situated throughout the islands for the use of visiting yachts.  Click here to find their positions.


The Club runs RYA approved sailing courses and has several RYA instructors and senior instructors in its ranks and uses the club owned Wayfarers and Picos for instruction.  On racing nights these boats are often used by past students.  Members are usually willing to introduce new members to the sport by taking them as crew and give them a taste of sailing.  The Club also takes part in other local club regattas and hosts an Intercounty against Shetland every 2nd year.


The Club is conveniently located on the harbour front in a listed building known as "The Girnel" in Harbour Street. 


There are regular dances and functions all year round, check out the social events for a yearly diary of activities that cater for everyone.


If you are intending to visit Kirkwall you can download our "Visiting Yachts" Brochure" here.
