WYC FIRST WEEKEND REGATTA SUCCESS!
OVER 40 BOATS ENJOY TWO DAYS OF SAILING ON THE RIVER MERSEY OFF NEW BRIGHTON!
We had an amazing regatta on 19-20 June. It was the first time the club had held a two day weekend regatta and was a complete success!
More than 40 boats from nine classes of yachts raced on the Mersey over the weekend including Mylnes, Etchells, Operas, Falcons, catamarans and dinghies (ILCA Lasers, Wayfarer and Enterprise dinghies), IRCs (big yachts) and of course, Wallasey’s historic wooden Seabird Half Raters.

About Wallasey Yacht Club
Wallasey Yacht Club is a small friendly club that 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 in the UK and a familiar sight on the river during the summer sailing season.
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.
We also visit North Wales to race against South Caernarfon Yacht Club in Abersoch, and Trearddur Bay Sailing Club on Anglesey which sail Seabirds 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.
Why not join us and find out more?
