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.
Chris Robinson and Adam Mcgovern are about to compete at this years WLYC 24 Hour Race NON STOP. 12 years ago they became the first people to complete this challenge, finishing a respectable 2nd overall. But this time it’s much more emotional as they are doing this to thank Manchester children’s hospital for everything they have done for both their children ,and to raise much needed funds for the NICU unit who saved Betsy's life (Adam beautiful daughter, and Chris’s godchild). Betsy and Alex both had a tough start to life but thanks to the fantastic work of the NHS at both St Mary's NICU and the Children's hospital mean both Betsy and Alex are quickly approaching their second Birthdays as happy little toddlers!
We would greatly appreciate if you could take a look at their JustGiving page for more information.
