Come sailing on the Mersey with Wallasey Yacht Club!

Wallasey Yacht Club sails historic Seabird Half Rater class yachts on the River Mersey at New Brighton on the Wirral,  just across the water from Liverpool.

Our Seabird Half Raters are one of the oldest one-design wooden boats still racing in the UK and a familiar sight on the river during the summer sailing season.

These lovely old boats are maintained using traditional boatbuilding and woodworking techniques, preserving them for future generations

Racing takes place most weekends and many evenings on the Mersey from May to September, providing some of the best low water racing in the North West of England.

We also visit North Wales to race against South Caernarfon Yacht Club in Abersoch, and Trearddur Bay Sailing Club on Anglesey which sail Seabird yachts too.

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.

This year, Seabird Half Raters celebrate their 125th anniversary since the class was first launched (1899-2024).

Why not join us and find out more?
