Get Involved

New to Sailing?

If totally new to sailing, there are various ways to get involved. The best way is to come down to Liverpool Marina on a Wednesday night from 9pm and introduce yourself. Its easy to turn do some sailing with our dinghy section or participate in our Keelboat Awareness Course. This is run twice a year and if you have never sailed on yachts before it is a great introduction and the best way of getting your “sea legs”.

For information on all our activities see our Sailing Opportunities page. There are various ways to start sailing with us. You can turn up on a Saturday to join a boat for racing in our “Venture Class“, or on a Sunday for the IRC racing. You could also start  sailing with our dinghy section, or enquire as to who is going out cruising and needs crew.

Dinghy Sailing

If you are looking for a first experience of a sailing craft or a 'taster' sail, our dinghy section is a great place to start. Please contact the dinghy captainfor more information.

Crewing and Sailing Opportunities at LYC/TSC

Are you interested in crewing on Racing and Cruising yachts?

If you are new to sailing and want to find out what it is all about, crewing is a great way of getting involved. There are active cruising and racing fleets catering for all levels of experience.

For an introduction to racing, why not try racing in our Venture Class, which usually races on a Saturday. For the more experienced sailor, racing in our IRC classes may be more up your street. Many of our racing boats regularly compete at top regattas such as Cork and Dun Laoghaire, and can be found racing most weekends on the River Mersey.

Maybe you are looking to increase your sea miles. Many of our cruising boats are on the look out for crew for longer journeys.

For more information about racing in the IRC classes, Venture racing or cruising, contact our Vice Commodore or the Commodore..
