On Sunday 8 Feb Southport Hesketh Round Table are organising for charity the Southport Mad Dog 10km Run. The event starts and finishes near Stanley High School. Th e course includes the coast road past WLYC to the Eco car park beyond the fair and returning along the promenade, past the north end of the Marine Lake back to the coast road and then towards Marshside.
Road Closures: For most of the morning access along the Coast Road will not be possible either from the Plough Roundabout (or what was the Plough!) or the Weld Road Roundabout.
Access to WLYC / SSC / Waterside Lodge: Throughout the morning access to our clubs will only be possible via the Millenium Bridge and controlled by Police and marshals; however, from 10:25 until about midday even that access will be blocked.
The Race Organisers have assured us they will re-open the roads as soon as it is safe to do so.
Our Club is located on the Marine Lake at Southport which provides safe sailing waters for sailors of all abilities. We are a family orientated Club and have a variety of sailing and social activities throughout the year. Our Clubhouse has accessible facilities.
The Club is proud to be recognised as a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Training Establishment and as a Champion Club for our support of Junior and Youth Sailing. We offer a ‘learn to sail’ course for the complete beginner and skills development courses for more experienced sailors. These courses are available to both members and non-members.
For those wishing to race we have a regular Club racing from March to October. We also sail on the sea at Ainsdale during the summer months.
We have a growing number of Club members who sail and race radio-controlled boats throughout the year.
Some of our members have offshore boats which are berthed in locations far and wide.
