Welcome

Looking for somewhere to sail in the Lake District?  Look no further than Ullswater, one of the most stunning lakes in the UK. We are located at the northern part of this seven-mile lake and, being only 10 minutes from the M6, we are the most accessible. Whether it's an introduction to sailing, RYA training, or competitive racing you're after, we have it all. And if you are a member of UYC you can camp for free in the club grounds.

We are delighted to announce that on March 4 we won the RYA's Club of the Year 2017 Award and in January we won Yachts and Yachting Magazine's Club of the Year 2017 Award.

“Cold, wet and fun,” that was the verdict of a young visitor at a day of special sailing taster sessions at Ullswater Yacht Club on Saturday, July 29. The club was taking part in the Royal Yachting Association’s Try Sailing Campaign to encourage more people to take to the water. Almost 90 visitors of all ages from throughout the area went afloat at the club to have a taste of what it is like to sail on Cumbria’s most beautiful lake.
