Winsford Flash Sailing Club has one of the best clubhouses in the Northwest.
There are warm changing rooms, showers, a bar
and galley, and tarmac surfaced car
Most people associate Sunday lunch with roast beef and Yorkshire pudding but
at our club Sunday lunch means pie and beans.
Yes there is other food, salads, sandwiches, pasta, and vegetarian meals, but
to the die-hard WFSC club member there can be only one meal.
You can bring your own food if you wish; tea, coffee, and cold drinks are
The Galley is where the delicious food for our social events is prepared,
buffets, hot-pots and so on.
Every year we have a Christmas dinner when the club is seasonally decorated
and a traditional dinner is served.
After racing has finished most members retire to the bar, and over a pint of
beer, or a glass of wine explain why they did not win, or why the sail fell
down, or why they capsized.
While we have the usual draught beers, our Quartermaster takes pride in
stocking an extensive range of bottled and canned drinks.
The bar is an essential part of the club social scene providing refreshments
after sailing, at socials, prize giving, and private events like birthday parties
that can be held at the club.
Various entertainments are put on during the year by our Social Committee.
We have; dances, quizzes, quest speakers, and most famously 'The Pantomime'.
This is written, acted and presented by club members and has been known to
loosely resemble well-known traditional stories but with the addition of lots
of local references and in-jokes. Members should check the back of the current
years fixtures list.
We try to make WFSC a family club that is as appealing and attractive to all
the members of the family whether they sail or not.
