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.

For those new to boating, we are a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) accredited training centre and have a number courses available including learn-to-sail, powerboat, and start racing. 2019 sailing course dates are now available here.
