“707 Club” – yacht sailing for all abilities

A group of keen club sailors run the PEYC 707 Club  programme. The 707 Club is a place to practise sailing on Hunter 707s, make mistakes and build skills in a safe environment. We take out any level from complete beginners to competent sailors who want to go sailing.

The club owns two small yachts named Apollo and Baltika, Up to 8 people can take part and club mentors are there to offer guidance. It is a great way to meet other people who also want to sail yachts.

Sessions run on Saturday afternoons, Sunday mornings and summer Thursday evenings.

Sessions are for PEYC members but you can come to up to three 707 Club sessions as a non-member, before you join the club. To join the club is £70 for racing membership or £50 for cruising membership in your first year (after that the fee increases). If you want to come along just go ahead and book online under the Booking tab.

In terms of what to bring or wear for the 707 Club sessions: ideally please wear waterproof clothing and suitable non-slip, non-marking footwear, as well as a sailing lifejacket. If you do not have a lifejacket, you can  borrow one of the buoyancy aids that are available on both the 707s.

For 2019, the 707 Club sessions will resume on 31 March, after the winter maintenance of the boats has been completed.

Sessions cost £10 per person and are bookable from the 707 Booking tab on the PEYC site.

If you are a complete beginner, you are very welcome, but we recommend that if you enjoy sailing with us, then you do a sailing course with Port Edgar Watersports. Membership of Port Edgar Yacht Club can give you discounts on the cost of their courses.

If you have any other questions about the 707 Club, please contact Peter Collings on peyc707@gmail.com
