Wallasey Yacht Club sails historic Seabird Half Rater class wooden boats on the River Mersey at New Brighton on the Wirral, just across the water from Liverpool.
Our Seabird Half Rater yachts are one of the oldest one design boats in the UK!
Racing takes place most weekends and many evenings on the Mersey and inshore waters of the Irish Sea during the summer sailing season.
The Mersey provides some of the best low water racing in the North West, and the club is able to launch from some of the cleanest beaches in the country.
We also race our boats against partner clubs in North Wales who sail Seabirds, including South Caernarfon Yacht Club in Abersoch, and Trearddur Bay Sailing Club on Anglesey.
And during the winter, we offer a regular programme of social events and snooker matches in a warm and friendly clubhouse.
Why not come and see us?
