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. We are located at the northern part of this seven-mile lake and, being only 10 minutes from the M6, we are the most accessible.
Whether it’s an introduction to sailing, RYA training, or competitive racing you’re after, we have it all. We have sailors of all ages and abilities. 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 and welcome anyone with an interest in sailing. Safety is a priority and a fleet of patrol boats is available.
Our Ullswater 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 also Ullswater Steamers sail regularly the length of the lake.
We run national sailing events, sail camp for youngsters, we have cadet and junior fleets, we have super kitchen and bar facilities. And by the way, if you are a member of UYC you can camp for free in the club grounds.
