Ullswater Sailing School has fleet of boats available to hire. More info on each class can be found below. We have three Toppers, six Picos, two Fevas, two Bahias, and two Laser Stratos.
Whilst we do not ask hirers to have any formal qualification to hire one of our boats, previous experience is essential. When making a decision as to whether to hire we will consider the following:
• Amount of experience
• How recently you have been sailing.
• Current and forecast wind speed and direction.
• Any sailing qualifications
We will monitor your initial performance and boat handling and occasionally this will warrant a tow back to base and the suggestion of some tuition rather than continuing with the hire.
We only hire out boats when there is safety cover available on the lake (usually weekends or school holidays) and when the wind is below Force 4. We ask that you stay within view of the sailing club.
