The Lerwick Boating Club

Organises junior, race and adult sail training, dinghy / Shetland model races and yoal rowing training sessions as well as sailing / rowing regattas.

With the races, training and International yacht races – including the famous Shetland-Bergen yacht race – we are very busy during the short summer season, especially as we also welcome visiting yachts, whose crews use our shower, laundry and bar facilities.

On the social side we organise quiz nights, men’s nights, regular musical evenings and special functions throughout the year. We can also show big football and rugby matches on our large screen. During the winter months pool and darts teams use the club on a weekly basis. To find out about the club facilities and to make a booking click here.

Membership of the club is open to anybody interested in water based activities – 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 LBC Membership Application Form, which is also available from the clubhouse. There’s an annual membership fee, but we have discounted rates for families, retired, junior and disabled persons. We also offer a discounted associate membership rate to club members of other water based activities, such as sea anglers, sailboarders, kayakers and divers.

We are always looking to welcome new members to the club, and we hope this site gives you some idea of the variety of water-based activities and social events the club organises.

Happy boating!
