Welcome to the Lerwick Boating Club

Lerwick Boating Club is hosting The European Fireball Championship from 24th July - 1st August 2014. Click here for more information

We also organise junior, race and adult sail training, dinghy races, Shetland model races, yacht races and yoal rowing sessions as well as sailing and rowing regattas. In addition we have regular club based events throughout the year. We are always looking to welcome new members to the club, and hope this site gives you some idea of both the water-based  activities and social events that are based at the club. 

Committee July 2010With the races, the training and International yacht races - including the Shetland-Bergen race - we are "brawly" busy during the short summer season, especially as we also do social events like jazz on the pier and barbecues. In addition we welcome visiting yachts, whose crews use our shower, laundry and bar facilities.

During the winter months pool and darts teams use the club on a weekly basis. We also organise quiz nights, men's nights along with regular musical evenings and special functions. We also show big football and rugby matches on our large screen.

Membership of the club is open to anybody interested in what happens on the water - you don’t even have to own a boat - or have set foot in one. - we will soon get you started! To join the club all you need to do is complete an application form, available from the clubhouse or click here. There's an annual membership fee of course, but we have special discounted membership rates for families, retired persons, juniors and disabled persons. We can also offer associate membership of the club to other club members of water based activities, such as sea anglers, sailboarders, kayakers and divers.

Happy boating
