Club Info

The West Lancs 24 Hour Race is the premiere opportunity for Sailing Club teams to compete for serious trophies (and status), whilst also enjoying the unique hospitality provided by one of the best social events in the dinghy racing calendar (The social event lasts for 48 hours - Friday, through to Sunday)

The race is sailed on the relatively safe waters of the Marine Lake at Southport. Entries are accepted from Sailing Clubs, Class Associations and Universities throughout the UK, with occasional visits from Eire, France and even the USA. Crew changes are permitted (in a specially designated docking area) during the race.

The 24 Hour Race, now in its 41st year is sailed in classic dinghies (Enterprise, GP14 and Lark) and has opportunities for Masters and University teams to compete for special prizes, whilst also being on equal terms with all other teams.

We are situated on the seaward side of the Marine Lake, north of Southport Pier.

The Marine Lake is located on the sea front close to Southport Town Centre. Southport is accessed from the North and South using the A565 and from the East using the A570 (Off Junction 3 of the M58).

In all cases, follow the signs for Southport, and then the local signs for the Beach.
