Wirral Sailing Centre is based at West Kirby Marine Lake and offers a full range of water sport activities, with courses available for all ages and levels of experience.
The ideal place to indulge your adventurous side, this 52 acre lake is totally enclosed and mainly non-tidal, making it an exceptionally safe facility and a perfect environment for learning.
Our friendly instructors are fully qualified to teach according to the methods set down by the Royal Yachting Association and British Canoe Union.
Tasters – available for sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and power boating.
This 3 hour “have a go” session will give you the opportunity to see what sailing, windsurfing or kayaking is all about and in a safe, fun environment. (NB Power boat and stand up paddle board tasters are 2 hours in length.)
