A friend was the rep from Edinburgh University on their committee; he was at the wind-up meeting.

Unless it has restarted, Linlithgow Loch SC has been out of existence since (I think) 2002.

Bear in mind many sailing clubs will let you do courses without joining at the full rate. I know that course fees at my club are inclusive of a 'training' membership for insurance porpoises and the like.
Have you looked at Dalgety Bay SC or Largo Bay SC on the forth, or Newburgh SC on the Tay?
There's the outdoor centre at Lochore Meadows country park.
Maybe Linlithgow Loch SC or Clyde Cruising Club at Bardowie but can't find much info on the web on those.

Fair enough- once the course has convinced you it's a good idea to keep sailing, the annual membership is really rather good value. I'd forgotten the joining fee was quite so high by comparison.

I've never sailed before, so this is a real "taster" for me - I'm not critisiing the prices at Venachar either - it's a great location for me should I keep sailing, however will cost about 265 to do the course..

Join - 125
Membership - 90
Course - 50

Port Edgar is only about 120 for the 2 day course.
