Welcome to Blackpool and Fleetwood Yacht Club. We are a sailing and powerboating club, based on the picturesque river Wyre estuary at Skippool. We have dinghy and keelboat racing fleets at Skippool, as well as an active cruising contingent who venture further afield.
We are open at weekends 12:00 to 16:00, with food & drink served from 12:00 to 14:00 , and the bar is also open on Tuesday evenings between 20:00 and 23:00.
We welcome new members of all ages & abilities, and don't worry if you don't have a boat - the club has a number of sailing dinghies that members can use for free. Click here for information on membership.
Look out for our Open Day on Saturday 18th May - this is part of the RYA Push The Boat Out campaign, and if an opportunity to have look round the club and to get out on the water with an instructor in a sailing dinghy keelboat or powerboat. We welcome new members of all abilities, from complete beginner to world champion.
