About Us

Located in Bury, Manchester  we are one of the premier sailing clubs within the North West.

We are an RYA Training Centre with several RYA qualified Instructors to teach sailing and power boating.  

Established in 1885, we have a rich history of producing some fantastic sailing talent that have won many championships and regattas. Even producing an Olympian.

Elton Sailing Club aims to promote Sailing, Angling and other similar recreational activities, to foster good fellowship and to protect the tranquility and surroundings of Elton Reservoir for the benefit of future generations.

We sail on Wednesday afternoon and evening, Thursday evening – Ladies Who Launch, and Saturday afternoons for Recreational sailing and Training, and having fun and then on Sunday we hold three races starting at 12.30pm. Refer to Sailing and Training Programme for more details.

We have a big club room with bar facilities and a galley serving hot & cold food on sailing days. Our facilities are one of the best around and recently had an extensive refurb to make them even more comfortable.

You don’t have to sail to be a member. We offer a social membership to those who just want to come down and enjoy the atmosphere and surroundings of the club, whilst enjoying a drink.
