Looking for somewhere to sail in the Lake District? Look no further than Ullswater, Cumbria’s ‘loveliest of lakes’, at the north of the seven-mile lake and only 10 minutes from the M6.
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.
Ullswater Sailing School provides training for all ages and levels of experience and we have a range of boats ready to take you on the water. Training is run by Royal Yachting Association 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. Beautiful 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 historic Ullswater Steamers sail the length of the lake.
We run national sailing events, an annual sail camp for youngsters, have cadet and junior fleets, there’s a super kitchen and bar facilities, we could go on… And 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?
