National Freestyle Windsurfing Tour

West Kirby will host the first event in the national UK Windsurfing Freestyle Tour over the weekend of 13/14 April 2013.

West Kirby is one of the country's top windsurfing destinations. We recently saw windsurfers from as far afield as Sweden and Norway coming to try their luck, reaching up to 50 mph down the wall in recent strong winds.

But it's not all about speed. West Kirby Marine Lake also provides remarkably flat water, even when the wind is howling, providing ideal conditions for one of the sports most visually exciting and challenging disciplines.

Come down to the lake over the weekend of the event to see some of the top windsurfers in the country competing in what promises to be a tightly fought competition. West Kirby is ideal for the event and spectators alike. Take a walk around the wall over the weekend and you will get right up close to the action.

Friends Group

A group of local residents and users of the magnificent West Kirby Marine Lake and Wirral Sailing Centre are in the process of setting up a "Friends" group, to try and help improve the fabric, environment and to promote the use of the Wirral Sailing Centre and Marine Lake.

The group are now in the process of drafting a constitution, and are looking to adopt the constitution and appoint members to the committee.

If you're interested in finding about the group, joining as a member or taking a place on the committee contact Fiona Hanik on 0151 637 6434 to find out more.
