Leisure Sailing

Leisure Sailing Representative is a new position on the UYC committee, recognising the importance of leisure sailing to the club. To find out more about leisure sailing, contact Carl Hallam - leisure@ullswateryachtclub.org

Following the success of the first Pimm's Cruise held in the summer of 2015 when six cruisers and assorted dinghies sailed down the lake and anchored in the lagoon opposite Glenridding for a barbecue and Pimms (it was so good they didn't get back to the club until 9pm), six Saturdays have been set aside every year for both cruisers and dinghies, and anyone else, to come together for a leisure sail.  These may involve such things as Pimm's, ice cream, picnics, afternoon tea, swimming and socialising, depending on the weather.

The Leisure Sailing event dates for 2017 are: Saturdays, May 13, June 2, June 24,  August 5, September 9 and September 23. All are welcome. Contact Carl Hallam for more details - leisure@ullswateryachtclub.org
