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. We offer competitive racing in a variety of formats, plus opportunities for informal training and sailing with safety cover on Saturday mornings. We also offer junior training sessions on specific Saturdays.

The sailing program is complemented by a number of social events that take place in our outstanding setting.

Following the Covid-19 guidelines, we are slowly and safely returning to activities in 2020.
