Cockle Island Boat Club
Cockle Island Boat club is located in Groomsport, Co Down on the southern shore of Belfast Lough.
The club is one of the clubs on the lough that forms part of the Belfast Lough Yachting Conference.
Although a relatively small club, we have a sailing and events programme that runs all year round. The summer season runs from May through September and plays host to weekly "Crowe Cup" racing, Round the Lough races and offshore races to Portpatrick and Glenarm as well as an annual Regatta.
A loose selection of gentlemen from within and outside the club, known as "The Wrinklies" also run a series of races on Monday afternoons.
During the closed season club life continues with a Wednesday evening events programme. This can involve anything from interesting talks to musical evenings and quiz nights etc. Details can be found in the programme section.
