Try Sailing, Saturday July 29, 2017

The visitors, mostly family groups, were taken for a sail by Alan Jones and Dave Woodhead of the North-west RYA and UYC instructors Sam Smith and Phil Brooks in boats from Ullswater Sailing School’s training fleet.

The offer of a taster sail for just £5 per person proved to be so popular that registration for the event was oversubscribed and online booking was closed a few days before. Despite the forecast of rain, there was a steady stream of visitors all day with the family groups able to sail together in the Sailing School’s larger boats, two Stratos and a Bahia. The wannabe sailors had an exciting ride on the lake in the fresh wind and there were certainly lots of wet bottoms! The visitors were given information about Ullswater Yacht Club and Ullswater Sailing School’s programme which include three full weeks of ‘learn to sail’ RYA courses which start on Monday, August 7.

“We were really pleased that so many visitors turned up and enjoyed themselves at the club. We had a very busy day and there was lots of interest in what we have to offer here,” said the club’s Sailing Development Officer Edmund Clarke, who co-ordinated the event.
