Ladies on the Lake

This ‘ladies only’ RYA Level 1 course is a basic introduction to sailing and will be taught in our stable Traditional boats by RYA qualified male and female Instructors.


This is an opportunity to get out and learn to sail whilst making new friends on the beautiful southern end of Ullswater.

Along with giving you the basic understanding of how a boat is handled and what makes it work, it will give you a good foundation into what makes a safe sailor. The course is in two parts: shore based and on the water, and at Glenridding Sailing Centre we emphasises the practical side of the course with as much time on the water as possible (weather dependant, of course!).

We continually and positively assess students and keep them informed of their progress.

• Rigging
• Rope work
• Sailing techniques and manoeuvres
• Launching and recovery

Onshore teaching
• Sailing theory and background
• Meteorology
• Capsize and recovery

Ladies on the Lake will start on Wednesday the 20th March and run every Wednesday until half term in May. This will cost £35 to join and £30 per 3 hour session there after.
