Contact  Jonathan Clarke, the Offshore Captain for more information regarding Offshore racing

We have active offshore fleets sailing out of Fleetwood and Windermere and welcome any boats or crew to join in. Yachts are always looking for crew and minimal experience is required.

 

The racing is combined with other clubs as that allows for decent sized fleets though results are also calculated separately for B&FYC yachts so double the chance of a trophy!

 

New for 2019 FHYC are organising a spring, summer and autumn series as well as a three race “Selker series”. It is laid back racing with boats of varying size and performance. We have single handed sailors and fully crewed boats and use the old PY handicaps to even the results up. It’s a great way to hone those sailing skills.

 

In addition there are also the MBSA Piel races and the Round IOM race which club boats often enter.

 

Fleetwood marina:

 

Club boats are entitled to two blocks of three free nights berthing per annum for each member.

Inexpensive berthing is also available in the fish dock on “G” pontoon (booking via ABP).

 

• If you wish to use your “free nights” in the marina contact the Offshore captain well in advance and your stay will be arranged with the ABP Marina staff. Do not attempt to make these arrangements yourself or just turn up at the marina as your booking will not be accepted and you will be billed at the normal rate.

 

•A copy of your boat insurance details will be required on arrival at Fleetwood Marina.
