Next Steps

If you are already a sailor and are looking for a new club, or someone who is keen to learn, or even perhaps someone who would like to experience sailing before committing, then please get in contact.  We will be delighted to hear from you.


It is the policy of Wigan & St Helens Sailing Club to safeguard children and young people taking part in boating from physical, sexual or emotional harm. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that, through appropriate procedures and training, children and vulnerable adults participating in RYA activities do so in a safe environment.
