Welcome to Ullswater Yacht Club

If you want to learn to sail, improve your racing or simply want to cruise Cumbria’s ‘loveliest of lakes’, UYC offers an unrivalled scenic location and a very warm welcome.
We are a friendly, family-orientated club welcoming anyone with an interest in sailing. Whether it’s an introduction to sailing, RYA training, or competitive racing you’re after, we have it all.
Perhaps some days you don’t want to sail or members of the family want to do something different. Beautiful fells surround our club, with good access for walking and mountain biking.
We have a busy club programme with something for everyone, run national sailing events, an annual sail camp for youngsters, have junior fleets, there’s a super kitchen and bar facilities, we could go on…
