  1. Rarely seen. Fleetwood MYPBC model yachting lake becalmed.

    Fleetwood RC Lasers were first launched when Fleetwood MYPBC decided to adopt the RC Laser as one of its classes to be raced at the club. Some members and one or two others who had previously been racing RC Lasers at Carnforth constituted  the nucleus and the fleet was born! 

    We are proud to be part of Fleetwood MYPB Club, one of the oldest and most prestigious clubs in the country. We enjoy the use of a fine clubhouse and first class sailing conditions on a large, purpose built model yachting lake with all-round access that has enjoyed weed-free conditions throughout the year.

    We have a growing fleet of RC Lasers and an additional boat that is available on loan for the day to anyone who wants to come and try the 'RC Laser experience'. Be warned though, the bug is easily caught! 

    We meet throughout the year and can offer a breadth of competition that is attractive to participants of any experience and ability and provides a natural focus for RC Laser sailing in the North West. All the tactics and racecraft of full size sailing are here without the disadvantages.

     Want to join us and aren't already a member of Fleetwood MYPB Club? Come down to the lake on any day we are racing or follow this link to the main Fleetwood MYPB Club site. Not sure when we are racing? See this link.
