Sailability at Bolton Sailing Club is part of an RYA nationwide scheme which offers people of all abilities the opportunity to enjoy the fun and freedom of sailing. We aim to provide excellent sailing facilities in the beautiful setting of the North West Moors.
If you have never sailed before and would like to give it a try, we will pair you up with a very experienced sailor in one of our double-seater Access dinghies. As your skills and confidence grow you can take over. So, if you are new to sailing or not; looking for adventure or just want to sail peacefully around a beautiful lake in light winds on a sunny Friday afternoon, Bolton Sailing Club is the place to be.
Situated alongside our picturesque 40 hectare reservoir, in the midst of breath-taking countryside and the shadow of Winter Hill.
We are an RYA Recognised Training Centre, Volvo Champion Club, OnBoard Club, and Sailability Foundation Club. We’re also home to Lancaster University Sailing Club.
Learning to sail
We have a large number of qualified Instructors and Senior Instructors who run up to four Royal Yachting Association (RYA) beginners courses each year.
Between April and September, we run races on Wednesday evenings.
Friday nights at Bolton are training nights for our Junior Members, with classes run both on and off the water for all ages and abilities.
Sundays are the main event at BSC, with 4 sets of races being run throughout the year (the Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter series), and 3 races per Sunday.
