I had a great time at the Sailing Centre youth club last year. I am coming back for more!

Sailing A great chance for kids to get into sailing. The teachers are good and the club is welcoming to all.

We had a fantastic hour on the lake which was a first sailing lesson for our 3 kids. Steve the instructor made it great fun despite the cold and gave everyone a turn at being in charge and was endlessly humorous and patient. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Fantastic friendly staff, true Cumbrian welcome! As a group we had some of our own equipment and then rented more - staff were so helpful and gave great advice to our party.

Spent a couple of days doing RYA1 as an adult novice. I learned so much - great balance of theory and practice at my own pace.. I'm hoping to get back next year.

Just finished a fantastic two day level 2 Powerboat course at the sailing centre. The whole two days was fantastic, very thorough & well organised. Steve who organised the course made sure we were well informed about what we should expect from the course, & also how we would benefit afterwards, all very clear. It was also a lot of... More
