Local Chart – not for navigational purposes


Forth Cruising Club extends a welcome to visiting yachts and yacht clubs.

Capernaum Pier is a drying harbour accessible three hours before high water and two hours after. There are two drying pontoons* near the head of the pier and a third towards the back of the harbour, yachts may also tie up against the wall, where there are regularly spaced ladders and plenty of mooring eyes. Water and electricity is available on the pier. Showers and toilet facilities are available in our clubhouse. Upstairs in the clubhouse there is a bar and lounge area. The bar has no regular hours, opening only for specific events such as some post race BBQs, Regattas and parties (see Calendar), but if you are organising a club cruise, please let us know you are coming and we can arrange to have the bar available if required. In front of the clubhouse there is a patio and garden area with seating which you are welcome to use.

* The two front pontoons and the approach cardinal marks for Brucehaven and Town Pier are removed for the winter at crane out.

For the younger visitor having been cooped up on board, sometimes for several hours, there is an excellent park with play equipment within a short walk of the harbour.
