Welcome to the West Lancashire Yacht Club 24 Hour Race

The UK's No.1 dinghy endurance race.

The 24 Hour Race is the premiere opportunity for Sailing Club teams to compete for serious trophies (and status), whilst also enjoying the unique hospitality provided by one of the best social events in the dinghy racing calendar so make sure you join us for the Friday night!

The race is sailed on the relatively safe waters of the Marine Lake at Southport, and racing is continuous for 24 Hours even in extreme weather conditions. Entries are accepted from Sailing Clubs, Class Associations and Universities throughout the UK, with past visits from Eire, France and even the USA. Crew, equipment and sail changes are permitted during the race (but, only in a specially designated docking area).

The 24 Hour Race, now in its 54th year, is sailed in classic dinghies (Enterprise, GP14, Lark and Firefly); and has opportunities for Masters, Ladies and University teams to compete for special prizes, whilst also being on equal terms with all other teams.

24 Hour Dinghy Race 2021

 

Cancellation

 

After a thorough review of the circumstances (both afloat and ashore), we feel we have no option but to cancel the 2021 edition of the West Lancashire Yacht Club, 24 Hour Dinghy Race on Southport’s Marine Lake

 

Now we have made that decision, we are going to concentrate on staging the 2022 race, making it a great event for all.

 

[Subject to confirmation, we expect the date for next year to be Saturday / Sunday 10 / 11 September 2022.]
