Welcome

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. And if you are a member of UYC you can camp for free in the club grounds.

We are delighted to announce that on March 4 we won the RYA's Club of the Year 2017 Award and in January we won Yachts and Yachting Magazine's Club of the Year 2017 Award.

OnBoard gets you out on the water, teaches you new skills and lets you have great fun too!”
