WLYC 24 Hour Race
Date(s) - 8 Sep - 9 Sep
West Lancs YC
The WLYC 24 Hour Race is the UK’s No.1 dinghy endurance race, and the GP14 class is the largest that takes part in this race, and has been running as an annual event for 50 years! The race is sailed in classic dinghies (Enterprise, GP14, Lark and Firefly) on the relatively safe waters of the Marine Lake at Southport, and racing is continuous for 24 Hours, even in extreme weather conditions.
This is also a great opportunity for teams to compete for serious trophies (and status), whilst also enjoying the unique hospitality provided by one of the best social events in the dinghy racing calendar.
The 24 Hour Race has opportunities for Masters, Ladies and University teams to compete for special prizes, whilst also being on equal terms with all other teams.
