|About||Providing sailing on the Ribble estuary at Lytham for 60 years|
Established in 1950, RCC has encouraged and facilitated sailing on the Ribble estuary (and further afield) for over 60 years.
We have a comfortable clubhouse with a well stocked bar, fully equipped galley and large lounge with arguably the best available panoramic views of the Ribble estuary. The clubhouse also houses male and female changing and shower facilities, garaging for our safety boat and our race box with its fully automated race signalling system.
The RCC dinghy fleet is accommodated outside the clubhouse within three, sub-ground level, concrete pens which afford all year round protection from the wind and we have a mini tractor to take some of the leg work out of launching and recovering dinghies from the jetty which is adjacent to the clubhouse.
RCC’s cruising fleet of some 100 yachts is based at our ‘dock’ facility about a mile upriver from the clubhouse, enjoying both the best non-commercial yacht facilities available on this part of the coast and easy tidal access to the Irish Sea.
The club arranges a busy racing calendar for yachts and dinghies as well as a number of cruises to Piel Island, the Isle of Man etc for our yachting members. We provide RYA based training at Fairhaven Lake and on the Ribble estuary. We also have a busy and varied social calendar with events ranging from formal dinners to quiz nights and barbeques – something to suit all tastes.
