CSGMC was established in 1973, and is a sailing and canoeing club located in the brand new Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre at Crosby Marina, in Cambridge Road, Waterloo, at the northern end of the Seaforth Freeport Container Terminal.
Crosby Marina, a man-made marina of some 78 acres, is bounded by the Mersey Estuary to the west, Liverpool Freeport and Seaforth Nature Reserve to the South, and a predominately residential area to the east. It is separated from the River Mersey by a sea wall, topped by a promenade overlooking Crosby Beach. The marina was constructed on land reclaimed from the sea when the adjacent Seaforth Freeport container base was built.
The club is a Registered Charity, and runs a dinghy section, sailing a variety of craft - Wayfarer, GP14s, Enterprise, RS Fevas, Herons, Gulls, Toppers - and a kayak section. It is run by the Scout and Guide movements, but not exclusively for scouts and guides, and draws its membership from local youngsters aged 10 to about 20 years.
