The Club was established in 1904 and is situated in the village of Kippford, on the Colvend Coast in Dumfries and Galloway. An area of outstanding natural beauty, its traditional towns and villages, rugged cliffs, islands and inlets with secluded beaches are a delight. The area was much favoured by smugglers, and tales of their activities abound. The Solway Yacht Club's situation on the Urr estuary provides for a variety of sailing from exciting dinghy racing in the shelter of the bay to offshore racing and cruising. It’s ideally situated for access to the Irish Sea and, from there, it’s but a short hop to the magnificent sailing area that’s the west coast of Scotland.
