The club is mainly a racing club, but anyone who wants to sail a dinghy or windsurfer is welcome. The club is open to all monohulls less than 21′. The club is situated at the western end of Pennington Flash, which is a 70 hectare lake near Leigh in Lancashire, within easy reach of the M6 and the A580 West Lancs road
