West Lancashire Yacht Club 24 Hour Race

As you will see from the sailing and social calendars, this event will be taking place on the weekend of Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September 2017 - West Lancashire Yacht Club

As a club we have been sending a team for many years. There is a row of commemorative plaques along the end wall of the clubhouse that marks our unborken participation. We have also been quite successful on some years but this event is not just a sailing event, it is also a major social occasion.

This year, we are once again sending a boat. The club has a good secondhand Enterprise that Tony Thresher prepared for the event.

Having got a boat, we need a team. Ideally we could do with at least 18 to 20 people. You do not have to be an ACE sailor as you see sailing of ALL abilities over the weekend. All we need are club sailors, both helms and crews, with the enthusiasm to have a go. 

The usual stint is about an hour or so (roughly 4 laps) and if we get enough people, this would mean doing two stints during the 24 hour period. 

Off the water, there is the disco in the big marquee on Friday night and a selection of groups again in the marquee on Saturday night. The bar in the clubhouse never seems to close over the weekend (although it ran out of Guinness in 2004, DISASTER!!). 

There are restaurant in the marquee selling very reasonably priced food over the weekend and if you are in the camping area the canteen in the Scout building also provides meals. Just outside the camping area are a choice of fast food outlets, McDonalds and Pizza Hut being the most memorable but there may be more by the time of the race.

So should this have whetted your appetite for what is an excellent weekend event and you wish to take part please contact our social secretary and put your name on the list.
