Why West Lancs ?

FUN - Blast across the wind or cruise around the lake and explore the different aspects of the Marine Lake at Southport - or, alternatively, the tidal sailing at Ainsdale.

Whether your pleasures are surf-boarding, dinghy sailing, model yachting, racing, cruising or just getting onto the water, there is something for everyone at West Lancs.

CHALLENGING - Pit your skills against the best sailors in the country and see how well you can do in the weekly club races.

West Lancs often has current or ex-National Champions racing at the same time as beginners to the sport are entering their first race. Whatever your standard, there will always be someone just that little bit better (or worse!) than you for you to race against.

IMPROVE - Attend one of our many RYA approved courses run by club members.

Whether you want to learn to sail, learn to race, or just improve your skills, there are weekend, day or evening courses available, as well as more informal training from other club members - a number of whom are fully trained as Class and Club Coaches.

And if you have children - aged 6 to 16 - then there are special Optimist Class sessions on a Saturday afternoon, where up to 20 kids have fun every week. You don`t need your own boat as we have our own fleet.
