Sailing and Racing

Welcome to the “North West’s premier racing club” where we pride ourselves in the strength and depth of what we provide to our members and visiting sailors.

We are open to all dinghies under 21 foot and have handicap racing throughout the year. Racing at the club takes place on :-
  • Wednesday evening (7.15pm start April to August)
  • Saturday afternoon ( 2 races, 1st start 2pm April to October)
  • Sunday afternoon (3 races, 1st start 12pm April to December with fleet racing for Asymmetrics)
  • Sundays in Winter  (2 races, 1st start 12pm) – the Tipsy Icicle Series is the largest & best winter dinghy series in the UK, with separate Laser, Asymmetric and Junior fleets.

See here for the full calendar of activities and here for more details of when we sail.

We have strong Asymmetric (RS200, RS400 & 29ers), Phantom,Solution, Solo and Laser fleets and pride ourselves in the successes of our junior and youth sailors, being represented in Lasers, 29ers, Fevas, Toppers and Optimists at zone and national squad levels. We hold RYA Champion Club status and run training throughout the year.
