Welcome to WiSH

Racing is back!

We realise that we might have to make rapid changes to the way we operate.  Before you travel to the club you should always

Wigan and St Helens Sailing Club is located at Poolstock, on the beautiful Scotman's Flash. The Sailing Club is a merged club formed in April 2020 from Wigan Sailing Club and Pilkington Sailing Club. 

The club has a friendly atmosphere and membership is open to everyone with an interest in sailing and related water-sports.

Sailing at the club takes place in a variety of boats including Enterprises, GP14s, Wayfarers, as well as Lasers, Solos and Mirrors.

We have GP14s, Enterprises, Lasers, Toppers and Optimist dinghies for the use of members and a galley providing hot and cold drinks as well as hot meals on club days.

There is regular racing supplemented by a healthy series of social events and trips including weekend visits to Abersoch, Coniston and Ullswater.

We make our facilities available to a number of other groups including Wigan Sea Cadets, Wigan Canoeing Group, Wigan Water Dragons (Dragon Boaters), as well as groups from the local nature reserve.

Stop by for a visit to see our facilities and meet our friendly members and learn more.  Membership prices are kept low as we are a not for profit organisation run completely by volunteers. 

Whatever your budget or time commitments, we have the perfect membership option for you.

If you are little frustrated at your performance, then have a look at these two suggestions on going that little bit faster.
