WYC is a small friendly club that 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 and a familiar sight on the Mersey during the summer sailing season!
Racing takes place most weekends and many evenings on the Mersey from April to September, providing some of the best low water racing in the North West!
We also race our boats against South Caernarfon Yacht Club in Abersoch, and Trearddur Bay Sailing Club on Anglesey which also sail Seabird Half Raters.
And when we’re not sailing, there’s a regular programme of social events in a warm and friendly clubhouse which includes a snooker table.
Why not join us and find out more?
The Club is currently closed while Covid restrictions are in place but if you are interested in sailing, learning more about wooden boats and their restoration or would just like to visit the club in the future, please don’t hesitate to contact us for a chat.
