Welcome our friendly Club, run and enjoyed by an enthusiastic group of model boat builders, buyers, and sailors of a wide range of craft. All types of boat are encouraged - except those powered by internal combustion – and not just “scale” models.
So, if you can build a fully-rigged sailing ship, or bought the latest “ready to sail” model from the Hobby Shop – you will be welcome.
With the landmark Rivington Pike as our background, our sailing pond is situated down Squirrel Lane, Horwich, Greater Manchester, and Junction 6 of the M61 Motorway, then the A673 northbound, will take you to our sailing water, which is close to Post Code BL6 7RR. (note: this code relates to a farm in Squirrel Lane - continue to the gate on the left)
Car access is through a gate which is unlocked by a key presented to Members only. Visitors are welcome, via a public track down to the pond. The water is shared with a local Fishing Club, and boat sailing days are Wednesday and Sunday. The water is not available for boats on any other day.
Sailing generally takes place between 10am - 3pm
