The Pipers and Folkboat present Members with a great opportunity for day sailing at minimum cost. Both are of a strong and safe design of boat, and the Club boats are maintained to a high standard to ensure both safety and competitive racing.

The Six Piper Class( Dodo, Grace, Mona, Rosanne, Peter Piper and Schwarze Lena) and one Folkboat (Sarita) will be in the water at the end of April. They are available for use, both racing and cruising, by Members and Cadets who have passed the appropriate tests, and on payment of a session charge, or a season charge as appropriate. The boats will also be used to train our Cadet Members to sail and race. RGYC Cadet Membership is open to all young people between the ages of 12 and 18. Details of how to join are available by contacting the Club.

The Club now also has a small fleet of Topper Dinghies. The acquisition of these dinghies in 2011 is part of RGYC's Youth Developement Policy through which we hope to have a stream of young Members joining the Club to ensure a healthy future.

The six Piper Club boats give Members the opportunity to participate in One Design racing. An individual boat may be booked for a particular race, or at the discretion of the Committee, for all races in a series, whether organised by the Club or by any other Clyde club. The Piper Class has many trophies awarded for individual races or series of races and the Club too has a number of trophies that are awarded for the best Club Boat performance in some of these races.

More information regarding booking arrangements, scale of charges and club boat regulations can be found on the "2013 yearbook" page and by clicking on link : Club Boat Regulations, Booking Arrangements and Scale of Charges
