Aberdeen & North East Shore Group

Aberdeen & North East Shore Group

We are a friendly group and meet about once every 2 months. We can answer your questions if you are just getting started with the trust.

Meetings start at 6.30pm in a members house (food is provided) or in a pub when we meet at 6:30 for pub food and the meeting starts after that.

We run social events such as visits to the Aberdeen lifeboat, the Maggie May historical lifeboat museum, the student’s show (supporting them and having a great time as well!). These are all accompanied by finding a suitable hostelry nearby.

Join our mailing list to be kept up to date with meeting details and what is going on by emailing northeast@oytscotland.org.uk

We raise money from local trusts, via the students union and through running RYA training courses. We also have an annual shore group weekend when we take over one of the big vessels, run a stand at the Portsoy traditional boat festival.

The funds are given as grants to North East youngsters, individuals and groups, to help them afford their own adventure under sail.

We have more information on our group and grants on these pages:
