West Kirby Sailing Club is a lively, friendly and very active community sailing club. We are delighted to welcome new members to become involved in club activities – both sailing and social.
Come and enjoy the fun and challenge of sailing at WKSC whatever your level of ability. As the largest sailing club in the north of England our members range from to those who enjoy sailing at a non-competitive level to those who compete in national and international competition, as well as those who like talking about sailing.
You don’t have to have any previous sailing experience or to own a boat. Bring your own boat if you have one; if not, hire a club boat, crew for an existing member (there are almost always club members looking for crews) or get involved with the many activities going on around the Club..
If you want to by a boat, fleet captains and club members are more than happy to help with advice on selection and purchase.
There is sailing almost every day during the summer months, and weekend sailing on the lake during the winter. Whether you wish to sail in a competitive fleet on the tide or on the lake, or would rather enjoy sailing at a more leisurely pace, WKSC can meet your needs.
A variety of social functions are arranged for members by the House Committee and details of forthcoming events are displayed on the notice board behind the bar in the Main Room and on the website. Members may hire rooms for private functions subject to the approval of the General Committee well in advance.
There is a busy programme of events in the winter months including ShipShape on Tuesdays, a quiz on Wednesdays and Bridge is played in the Wilson Room on Thursdays throughout the year. Each Friday evening is Club night in the Main Room and the 200 Plus Club is held on the last Friday of each month in the Main Room.
