Half day Have a Go Session


A half day sailing session is a great outing for all the family and is better when you have younger children.We run skippered sailing sessions to suit your needs. Whether it is a special birthday, a family day out or you just want a great way to see the Lake District from your own private yacht we can help. No previous experience is needed and we can take up to eight people on our cruising yachts.

Windermere is one of the most picturesque lakes in the National Park and is nearly eleven miles long with many varied landscapes to look at. Your skipper will tell you about the surrounding area and where you are.

Do I need to get involved?

Everyone is encouraged to get involved with sailing the yacht, but if you prefer to sit back and enjoy the view then your skipper will do everything – including putting the kettle on and making sure everyone is safe and warm.
