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.
Welcome to our website!
Whether you’re new to sailing and fancy having a go, or an old salty sea dog looking for a new club, you’ll hopefully find all the information you need here.

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.
