The Club

History

Fleetwood Model Yacht and Power Boat Club has one of the finest reputations in the model yachting and boating world for its standards of organisation, its large clubhouse and the quality of its sailing water. All members should be aware of the large amount of time and effort expended by the club committee, the members and also by the local authority, Wyre Borough Council, who maintain our sailing water.

The clubhouse is located at Laidleys Walk, by the side of the main boating lake, on the main promenade in Fleetwood, Lancs. Parking is next to the clubhouse. There are three lakes, one for model yachting and one used by Fleetwood Nautical College for boating and sail training. The third is the smallest, is very shallow and is often used by children. It is suitable for small boats with minimum draft.

The Fleetwood lake, with its total perimeter access to the sailing water, was purposely designed for free sailing yachts and provides excellent access for the sailing of all forms of model boats and yachts.

You can be proud to belong to a club that has had an excellent past and looks forward to an excellent future.

The club is affiliated to the Model Yachting Association and frequently stages National and International Yachting events.

Use of Lake

The main lake used by the club is a public lake and any member of the public or Club member may sail on it, at any time, using R/c equipment. As a result of this care must always be taken to prevent a clash of radio frequencies. Most non-members are very co-operative and if they see club events taking place will: (a) stay clear of them (it’s a big lake); (b) check with the club event officials regarding frequencies.

If a club event is taking place and club members are not involved but wish to sail, then it is courtesy to check the radio frequencies being used and try to sail in areas of the lake that do not conflict with the organised club event. Further details of the club and its activities, etc. can be found at the club or on this website.
