Winsford Flash Sailing Club - Cheshire's Hidden Gem
A friendly, family club with a 90 year history, located on a 90 acre lake in the picturesque area of Cheshire known as The Cheshire Broads.
Fed by the river Weaver and at the head of the Weaver navigation, Winsford Flash Sailing Club provides leisure and racing sailing, and water based activities in a friendly atmosphere with a focus on fun.
Sailing is one of the great sports for developing core fitness, yet it never feels like a chore. Getting fit whilst having fun, sailing is perfect for anyone, of any age and any ability.
With those 90 acres of still water to explore, and miles of challenging river, Winsford is ideal for both beginners and advanced paddle boarders. Why not come and have a go?
We have a range of sailing dinghies and paddle boards available for members to use for a small maintenance fee, and provide taster sessions in all our activities from our club house.
Run by the members for the members, Winsford Flash Sailing Club enjoys a modern, two storey club house, weekly racing, Royal Yachting Association (RYA) sailing and powerboat courses in a safe, stunning location and adhering to the highest standards of on and off water safety.
We also have social sailing days to enjoy fun sailing or maybe try a class of boat you have not sailed before with rescue cover laid on and the odd impromptu barbecue.
If you want to know more, come on down! There are usually people at the club on Wednesday evenings, Sundays and most Saturdays.
