Hoylake Sailing Club
Hoylake Sailing Club
When the sailing club on Hoylake Promenade was founded in 1887 it was possible to launch boats and sail immediately in front of the clubhouse. Now, due to lack of water caused by sand deposition, sailing takes place farther along the promenade or offshore and is only possible inshore immediately off the clubhouse on the very highest spring tides. The abundance of sand is a boon to sand-yachters, here raising the flags in the opening ceremony of the 2007 European Sandyacht Championship.
