Against the seafront off the main promenade at Fleetwood you’ll find a boating lake and a clubhouse cabin set against a car park – this is the home to the Fleetwood Model Yacht and Power Boat Club.
All through the year, members hold sailing fixtures, and most Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and weekends you’ll see people around in the area, and sailing when the weather is OK.
There are also big events held right here in Fleetwood which draw competitors from all over the UK and from abroad, as happens in years when the World Championships are held here.
All the fixtures can be found on the club websites www.fleetwoodmypbc.org.uk and www.fleetwood.rclasers.com
The Fleetwood Model Yacht & Power Boat Club was formed in 1929 and the lake was officially opened in 1932. In the same year the club held its first National Championship for 6 Metre model Yachts.
In the following year, 1933, the British Open A Class Championship was held for the first time at Fleetwood. Since that time Fleetwood has held many major National and International Championships for many classes of boats. We have a racing section for model yachts rules and a thriving Scale section. This section is active in all aspects of scale and semi-scale, both yachting and power.
Over the years there have been constant improvements to the clubhouse and the lake facilities and it is now one of the finest clubhouses in the country.
Everyone is welcome who is interested in this sport and hobby. This corner of the world is also a great place to while away a nice afternoon, with a drink and snack from the cabin cafe, a brisk walk on the fabulous seafront, and then a chat to the ducks and swans – who expect food from everyone!
