24 Hour Yacht Race 2006
Photos by Patrick Trollope

THE 2006 West Lancs. Yacht Club 24 Hour Race 2006 took place over Saturday 9 September and Sunday 10 September 2006.  

Running a week early to normal, the race was a massive success.  The High Tide gave the lake some added height and that meant the dingy craft could manoeuvre far easier.   

This year the overall winners were the race charity team Sail 4 Cancer, who took the top prize for the event.   Since its start back in 1966 the event has become a classic.  No other race exists like it and it is a truly unique event.   If you have a team and you would like to enter, then you will be please to know that next years race is planned for 15 September to 16 September 2007.  To apply email for more information. 

This year was plain sailing, unlike some years.   The craft all had good wind and some capsized, but not as many as normal, due to the conditions.   Race Chairman Rob Pickering said:- "This year has been far more social than normal online and on the water.   Team spirits both of and on the water for all teams have been fantastic and it has been one of the best races for that reason.   Despite a power problem on the Saturday night, the race has run smoothly and with out any incidents.  We would like to thank every one for their continued support, with out the helpers sponsors and the teams we would not have a race."
