Welcome to South Windermere Sailing Club
Our family friendly club has been on the shore of Windermere for over 50 years. We have a fantastic new club house at the National Trust’s Fell Foot Park on the southern tip of the lake.
Our aim is to provide a friendly club that encourages both adults and juniors to have fun on the water.
SWSC is an RYA affiliated club that runs an extensive sailing program to suit all ages and abilities. Junior sailing and fun sails take place on Saturday mornings, with relaxed racing on Saturday afternoons. A full race program operates on Sundays; this includes handicap racing, fleet racing, a number of long distance races and Pursuit Races. Junior training, and informal coaching offered on Saturday mornings. During the summer the club organises two separate weeks of sailing; Family Week and Regatta Week. Members are able to store their boats within a dinghy park during the sailing season, enabling easy launching and the use of two wooden jetties.
The sailing program is complemented by a number of social events that take place in our outstanding setting.
In light of measures to protect people's health put in place by the National Trust at Fell Foot, and in line with guidance from the RYA and the government, we unfortunately must cancel all club activity until further notice. The Fell Foot Active Base will be closed as of Friday, March 20, including the changing rooms and toilets. People may still work on their boats and sail individually, being responsible for More »
