The club hosts a varied social calendar.  Historically, St Andrew Boat Club sits prominently in the Edinburgh social scene. From inception until 1939 (with a short hiatus during the Great War) the Annual Dinner and Fancy Dress Ball were highlights of the Edinburgh season.  Today, we restrict ourselves to three key events:


Annual Dinner


Burns' Supper


Garden Party


These events are held usually in November, January, and August. Be sure to check out the News and/or Social sections for up-to-date details of all latest social events.



Annual Dinner


The Club's Annual Dinenr will be held at The Royal Scots Club, Abercromby Place, Edinburgh, on Saturday 26 November 2016 from 1930h.


Dress code: Black Tie.


Tickets are £40 (various discounts available, so ask the Treasurer).


All welcome and encouraged to attend (bring some friends).  All active squads are expected to bring along raffle prizes (typically bottle-related).


The Hon Treasurer has set up an online payment facility so you can book your tickets and pay by card easily.


Payment can also be made by cheque posted in the Hon sec's box at the boathouse, or by bank transfer to the subscriptions account. If you choose to pay directly, please ping an email to the Treasurer to let her know.
