Cancelled - Club Open Day

APRIL 25th 2020

This event has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Our Open Day is part of the RYA "Discover Sailing" campaign, to do exactly as it says..

The club will be open from 11:00 until 15:00, with boats out on the water from about 12:00 until 14:00.



For those interested in starting sailing, this will be an ideal opportunity to try sailing for free on the River Wyre at Skippool. Our team of instructors will be on-hand to take you out on the water in one of our club boats, or in one of the many classes of boat sailed by our members.

On shore, our club members will be happy to talk to you about all aspects of boating such as learning to sail, choice of boat, racing, cruising and maintenance.

The event is open to all, however dinghy and powerboat trips are not suitable for very young children/toddlers. No previous sailing experience is necessary.


Please note that sailing at Skippool is tidal, which means that when the tide goes out, we have to stop sailing. Therefore please arrive in plenty of time to make sure you are not disappointed.


Food and hot drinks will be available to buy in the clubhouse.

We recommend bringing warm, waterproof clothing and footware than you don't mind getting wet. We will provide essential safety equipment such as buoyancy aids.
