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.

Lyons Brothers Sail to Victory at Brass Monkey 2014
20 January 2014 (733 reads)


Ullswater Yacht Club sailors Matty and James Lyons sailed their 49er to victory in the re-scheduled Brass Monkey event held at Yorkshire Dales SC on Saturday (18 January). This popular event, which is part of the Winter SailJuice Series had to be re-scheduled because of bad weather between Christmas and New Year. Shifty conditions in winds from Force 2 to 4 made the event challenging for the 80 boats taking part. Matty and James won with a 2nd and a 1st, pushing a Topper and Scorpion into 2nd and 3rd places respectively. 

Thanks to Yorkshire Dales SC. Report by Pauline Thompson. For full report/results click Read more.
