Formed from humble beginnings in 1921, Delting Boating Club has grown to become one of Shetland's most active, modern, and well-equipped boating facilities.

Situated at the head of Busta Voe, in a peaceful and interesting location.  Delting Boating Club provides a range of water based activities for all the family throughout the summer months and is an ideal base for your caravan while you explore the North Mainland and Northern Isles of Shetland.

Within a short distance from Mavis Grind - where the North Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean - Delting Boating Club is the ideal base from which to explore, and experience, Shetland's costal walks.

Delting Boating Club Caravan Park Information
The Delting Boating Club Marina (also known as the Brae Marina) is situated at the North West head of Busta Voe (60 23.49N  -  01 29.45 W).  It is owned by the Members of the Delting Boating Club Marinas Users Association and is managed by and elected Committee.

The Marina was built using funds raised by the Association Members and generous grant aid from the Shetland Islands Council and Delting Community Council.  The Marina has close ties to the adjacent Boating Club with which it share some facilities.

The Marina has 54 fully serviced berths with provision for visitors.  Berths are equipped with fresh water and shore power; a diesel refuelling facility is provided at the head of the lifting out point.

Visitors should initially berth on the outside of the North pontoon from where a berth will be allocated.

The entrance situated at the North East end of the breakwater can be difficult to see when approaching from the South; it is marked with Port and Starboard hand markers.  Visitors should be aware of the shallows off the shore to the East of the Starboard hand mark.

The adjoining Boating Clubs is one of the most active sailing clubs in Shetland and holds races on Saturday nights during the season.

The Club is open at 7pm every evening during the summer month and visitors are most welcome to use the bar facilities.

Winter storage ashore can be arranged.

Junior Sailing Instruction

Shetland Sailing Centre, which is based at the Delting Boating Club, offers Royal Yachting Association courses leading to awards of the Youth Sailing Scheme levels 1 to 4.

These courses usually run on Monday evenings, starting mid May and continuing until the end of August.  They are usually restricted to pupils from P5 and up and, for insurance purposes, their parents have to be members of the club.  A family membership costs £42 per annum + a £3 joining fee.

The club has also run more intensive one week courses during the school summer holidays but this depends on the availability of instructors.
