Welcome to Ullswater Yacht Club

Looking for somewhere to sail in the Lake District?  Look no further than Ullswater, one of the most stunning lakes in the UK.

Ullswater Yacht Club is located at the northern part of this seven-mile lake, and being only 10 minutes from the M6, is also one of the most accessible. 

We have sailors aged from 7-70 (and beyond). They race and sail for pleasure, some for the competition, and others just like to sit and admire the view. We are a fun, friendly, family orientated club with disabled access that welcomes anyone with an interest in sailing. Safety is a priority and a fleet of patrol boats is available.

Our Sailing School provides training at all levels, and we have a range of training boats ready to take you on to the water. Our training school is run by Royal Yachting Association fully qualified Instructors who will make learning to sail fun and enjoyable. 

Perhaps some days you don’t want to sail or members of the family want to do something different.  Fells surround our club, with good access for walking and mountain biking. Some of the best walks in the country are on our doorstep and Ullswater Steamers sail regularly the length of the lake.

We run national sailing events, an annual sail camp for youngsters, we have cadet and junior fleets, we have super kitchen and bar facilities, we could go on...  And by the way, if you are a member of UYC you can camp for free in the club grounds.

Why don’t you come and see for yourself.
