Mersey Yacht Club

You may not know it, but the Mersey Yacht Club had very humble beginnings. On November 12, 1923 a group of men met in Curwen’s Men’s Hairdressing Salon in Rooke Street. They had decided to form a sailing club. The meeting was a success and on December 1 a club was formed with about fifty local yachtsmen.
