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. To view the club constitution and rules click here.

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!

Anne-Lise AndersonI'll be heading down there tomorrow night and will have a look. Is there any 'distinguishing features' that will identify it ? Colour/shape/keyring2 weeks ago   ·  1

Lerwick Boating Club added 7 new photos β€” with Stuart Polson.

LBC fun day for all Mirror training and race squad, as well as our RYA level 1& 2 beginners. We had Picos, Mirrors, a racing yoal, a yacht, some Laser 4.7's and even a Fireball on the water for the kids to try.
Everyone had a great day with the parents serving up a well earned lunch.
Some of our older Mirror sailors tried Laser 4.7 sailing as well as 3 sail reach trapezing in a Fireball.
The younger sailors had fun and games in the Picos and Mirrors.
We had a grandad taking his grandsons off for their first ever taste of sailing and the peerie Spence twins got a hot run in a RIB.
At the end of the day, our RYA students received their certificates, before everyone did a mass jump off the pier!
Big thanks to all the team of helpers who have worked with the kids all summer as well as the parents for keeping them fed and watered.

Orkney Rowing Club would like to thank Lerwick Boating Club for a truly fantastic weekend! Big thanks to Andrew for coming out on a soggy Friday morning and letting us have a shot of the club boats, and for also being a terrific host all weekend. A huge thank you for letting us use your boat for our races all weekend. We especially enjoyed the weather you layed on for us on Sunday and the hospitality shown to us as well. We are really excited about returning the favour to you next year. Thank you so much once again. ...
