We took delivery of our own St Ayles Skiff in November 2017, purchased and equipped with the assistance of grants from various donors, including The Big Lottery Fund, East Fife Sports Council, Fife Council Club Development and Aviva, and Mrs Kathleen Rennie.
Our second skiff , Sea Queen belongs to the community of St Monans and we have teamed up together as two communities - "pulling together is stronger than one"!
The skiff section of our club is a rapidly growing group of people, of all ages and experiences. We’re open to new members who would like to participate in this popular coastal activity, suitable over 14 years old. No experience is necessary!

The sailing season is from mid-April to October.
The tidal bay surrounding Elie Harbour provides a superb location for sailing all types of craft, and is an ideal base from which to learn to sail, or expand your skills.
Whether pottering around in a dinghy or day boat, or heading off in a keelboat on a cruise along the River Forth, Elie is an ideal location. Wildlife such as puffins, seals, porpoise and dolphins are regular companions on outings in the summer.
We have an adjacent dinghy park where members can store smaller craft, and launch directly onto the long sandy beach.
New members will find an enthusiastic willingness from older members to pass on and share knowledge and experience, whether it be about how to rig up their new boat, fix some obscure piece of kit, or more generally how to improve their sailing.
The club owns an RS Vision called "Ruby", Hartley 12 called "Sparrow", a Topper and a Laser, all free for the use of club members. You don’t need a boat to sail with us!
