Get yourself afloat amongst the stunning scenery of Ullswater in the English Lake District! The Glenridding Sailing Centre provides a wide range of sailing dinghies and traditional boats, canoes + kayaks.

Expert sailing tuition by friendly, patient RYA qualified staff is available in our boats or indeed your own if it's suitable.

If you are thinking of bringing your own boat to this fabulous location you may launch and use the facilities on the site for a small daily or weekly fee. If you would like to keep your boat here throughout the season, then check out our launching + storage fees.

Safety boat cover, and qualified + experienced help, are on hand every day during the sailing season (typically March to end-October).
