Lake District Ullswater Swallow Boats Meeting @ Lake District Ullswater Swallow Boat Meeting
Aug 10 – Aug 12 all-day

Ullswater is a popular venue with attractive scenery, interesting but not too challenging sailing and good shore facilities.

Patterdale is a straightforward 15miles (30 mins) drive from J40 on the M6.

See the “Ullswater” blog on the Swallow Boats forum for general sailing advice and location details.

Local B&B’s and campsites to suit all tastes can be found on the internet.

A popular choice for Swallow boaters is Gillside Farm, Glenridding, Penrith CA11 0QQ
www.gillsidecaravanandcamping site.co.uk 017684 82346
Gillside Farm has pitches for tents and motor homes, is a short stumble from the Travellers Rest and and a slightly longer stumble down to Glenridding.

Glenridding Sailing Centre  is again providing parking, launching/recovery, changing rooms and a warm welcome for £65 Friday to Monday.  If you are attending then please let me know on this forum or messages and book yourself and boat directly with GSC at:
Glenridding Sailing & Activity Centre

Please note I’m happy to provide advice and assistance on the location and meeting arrangements but please see the terms on which I organise this event mentioned in the Ullswater blog and elsewhere on this forum.  Skippers are entirely responsible for the physical safety, money and property of their boats and crews.
