Cruising on the Clyde
The waters of the Clyde offer beautiful scenery and interesting, safe cruising, limited only by time, weather and imagination.
The Clyde area:
- is Fantastic for gaining experience and mileage without having to contend with the more challenging conditions of the West Coast;
- is Ideal for the novice sailor as well and the more experienced sailor wishing a relaxing holiday with family and friends;
- offers protected lochs and waters within which most cruising takes place;
- offers a multitude of marinas, anchorages and moorings, many of which are adjacent to, or even operated by, the many good restaurants and pubs situated within easy reach of the water.
- offers reasonably regular sightings of Seals, whales, porpoises, dolphins, basking sharks, seabirds of all kinds together with other wildlife. These sightings may not be as abundant as on the West Coast but are nevertheless to be anticipated. Added to which, the occasional submarine may be encountered on its way home to its base at Faslane on Gareloch – just make sure you keep out if its way!
