Sailing / Yacht Club
Winsford Flash Sailing Club is situated on a 90-acre lake in the heart of Cheshire, created from the river Weaver. The club offers various types of membership, social events throughout the year, has keen but friendly competition for all levels of proficiency, runs informal training during the summer and is working towards becoming a RYA Recognised Training Centre. As an RYA Affiliated club, they have organised racing on Sundays between March and October, host weekend open meetings for classes and run a short winter handicap series. Although they are quite active, they realised there was a gap in the pathway from members learning to sail and then actually racing at the club. They also found that training and coaching was being given to the junior members.
