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.

A shortened version of Marion Marshall's slideshow 'What a Year 2016' which was shown at the annual dinner dance is now on YouTube (without the music so you'll have to sing 'Living Next Door to Alice' while you watch). It is being used as part of our Club of the Year submission to the RYA - fingers crossed... To watch it, click on the YouTube link below.
