South Windermere Sailing Club Membership
South Windermere welcomes membership applications, for those who wish to join us in racing or sailing for fun. We offer relaxed "Messing About in Boats" on Saturday mornings, friendly racing Saturday afternoons, and competitive racing in a variety of formats on Sundays. There are opportunities for informal training and sailing with safety cover on Saturday mornings. We also offer junior training sessions on specific Saturdays to build skills; we will be partnering with YMCA Lakeside, an RYA Training Centre, for official training courses for members.
Dinghy parking is available for SWSC members (subject to space limitations), and allocated in the first instance to members who regularly join in SWSC racing and other club-organised sailing activities and who complete their duty requirements. The size limit for boats stored in the boat park is 6.10m long and 2.13 m wide.
Membership runs from 1 January through 31 December 2022. The official sailing programme runs from March through October, with the Frostbite series extending to mid-December.
