Sailing Holidays for the Home Educated

If your children are Home Educated (or if your family or group can take its summer holidays early in July 2017) then please read on, as we are offering an exclusive holiday experience which could be made just for you…

Glenridding Sailing Centre has linked up with its neighbours at Patterdale Hall Estate to tempt families to come and enjoy great self-catering accommodation alongside Royal Yachting Association certified sailing tuition, all of this amidst the breath-taking beauty of the Ullswater valley, in the heart of the Lake District from Saturday the 1st of July through to Saturday the 8th July 2017.

Parents can drop off their children at the Sailing School each morning at 0945h, and then head off to get some quality time to them-selves, knowing that their children will be enjoying a potentially life-changing experience. You’ll also get a day or two to enjoy the area as a family, so we’re pretty sure we’ve covered all of the bases!

readyabout!1Ever fancied giving sailing a go, whilst saying ‘aaaarrrrr’ a lot?

Join us to celebrate International Pirate Day on Sunday 17th September!

We are running an open day offering discounted sailing taster experiences aboard our awesome Traditional ‘Pirate’ Sailing Boats – each one flying the Jolly Roger of course – to give you an idea of what sailing is about and just how easy it is to get involved.

Accompanying you will be an experienced and RYA qualified sailing instructor/Pirate Captain who will show you the ropes and ensure that you return to shore safe and wanting (we hope) more.

Sessions last one hour and cost only £5 per pirate. We will also be offering Discount Vouchers towards our RYA sailing courses to all pirates that enjoyed their experience and wish to take sailing further.

↑ Places are on a first come first served basis, therefore we strongly recommend booking in advance. We reserve the right cancel sessions without prior notice due to inclement weather.
