If you have ever fancied the idea of sailing, now could be the time to give it a go. Ullswater Yacht Club is holding special taster sessions as part of the Royal Yachting Association’s Push the Boat Out campaign on Saturday, May 19, 12.30 – 4pm.

The club will provide buoyancy aids and helmets for all under 16s and anyone else who wants one. We suggest you bring a spare set of clothes just in case and wear warm clothing, waterproof/ windproof jacket and shoes you don’t mind getting wet.
The taster sessions are for all from eight to 80+, or younger with parents or guardians, family groups are most welcome. Children under eight can take part but must be accompanied by an adult on the water. We are a family-friendly club and have members of all ages and abilities.
