About Us

Lough Swilly Yacht Club is based in Fahan Creek on the shores of Lough Swilly in County Donegal, three miles from Buncrana and ten miles from Derry.

Our membership consists of IRC and other racing and cruising sailors as well as powerboat enthusiasts and some keen dinghy sailors. All club members enjoy spending time pottering about on the lough and many like to venture further afield; either to cruise or to represent the club in competition (see the Ships' Blog section for more).
