Located on the sheltered north east shore of Lough Neagh Antrim Boat Club sits in woodland just a short walk along the beach from Shanes Castle. Most of our events take place in Antrim Bay giving a safe area of about six square miles while at any time never being out of sight of land. As one of the leading sailing clubs on Lough Neagh, Antrim Boat Club hosts a range of sailing events. From the competitive winter series, attracting boats and sailors from Strangford Lough and further a field, to the more relaxed summer series taking place on warm Thursday evenings throughout the summer months.
