Fleetwood Model Yacht & Power Boat Club

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. The club now has about 120 members, a fine club house and excellent sailing water. But be warned it can blow up a bit rough at Fleetwood and skippers used to calmer conditions have sometimes been surprised with the size of the waves, the strength of the wind and the lashings of horizontal rain!

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!
