2021 Open Day
Our "Discover Sailing" days have proven very popular and are now fully booked.
Social Sailing Saturday
On 26th June we held a cruise up-river, under Shard bridge and heading east towards Out Rawcliffe. The fleet consisted of 6 sailing dinghies, one Canadian canoe and a RIB support boat. It was nice to see some different scenery to our usual sailing area. The next social Saturday event is a cruise in the opposite direction on 17th July (meet 15:30 for briefing and 16:30 launch).
Flying Fifteen Open Cancelled
Due to a very low number of people registering for our Flying Fifteen Open Competition, we have reluctantly decided to cancel the competition.
COVID-19 and Sailing
Update 4th May 2021
The club grounds including the boat parks and slipways have now re-opened, and sailing is permitted. Changing rooms and showers are accessible for organised club activities (e.g. racing), although the rest of the clubhouse remains closed. The outside toilet is available to all members with keycard access.
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.
The Clubhouse is currently closed except on Race Days.
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.
