About us

Having celebrated 60 years on the water in 2012, Bolton Sailing Club is one of the longest established Sailing Clubs in the North West, with a strong tradition of dinghy racing at both club and national levels.

Our clubhouse is situated alongside our picturesque 40 hectare reservoir, in the midst of breath-taking countryside and the shadow of Winter Hill. Being one of the country’s highest Sailing Clubs, we are afforded ideal weather conditions for sailing – the perfect way to relax after a gruelling week at work!

With a multitude of friendly sailors, you’ll never be short of people to discuss tactics and techniques with, or simply the rules of the road – countless races have been won, and lost, whilst propping up the bar after the last race. Our social calendar is fully booked, with New Members Evenings, a Summer Ball, our Annual Dinner and Prize Giving, Christmas Carol Concert, and many more, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved and get to know your fellow sailors.

The Sailing Club is a Recognised RYA Training Centre, OnBoard Club and Sailability Foundation Club. We are also home to Lancaster University Sailing Club and Pendle Community High School Sailing Group.
