The club committee have taken the difficult decision to close our clubhouse until further notice, following government advice on the COVID-19 outbreak. The means that we must also cancel or postpone all of our open/public events for the next few months. This includes our open Day (April 25th), the Wyre Light Challenge (8th May) and Flying Fifteen Open (9th & 10th May) and all training courses.
The dinghy racing program is suspended until further notice as are any on water activities and offshore boat park movements.
Please note that members are not permitted to work on their boats until further notice.
We will continue to monitor advice and guidance with the aim of resuming activities as soon as it is safe to do so.
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.
