Sailing is a 365 day a year activity on Windermere with many people taking to the lake to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of autumn and winter on the lake.
But if something a little more competitive is your thing then the Winter Series sailing regattas held monthly during autumn and winter are perfect. Organised by the Windermere Cruising Association and sponsored by Windermere Marina, these are a chance for a spot of competition out of season and a continuation of the growing in popularity Summer Series of racing.
The Winter Series is also gaining in popularity attracting sailors from across the North West and very serious and competitive ones at that, the weather does not in any way put these participants off! The outcome, plenty of exciting races, close finishes and major competition. All in all, a great day for those taking part as well as spectators alike.
The next regatta is a fantastic Pre Christmas one on December 20th. As always it back to The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant at Windermere Marina for the announcement of winners, post race discussion and much needed beverage and food.
Windermere Marina is open all year round for visitor mooring with more details to be found via https://www.windermeremarina.co.uk or by calling 015394 46551. Also remember Windermere Marina offers luxury self catering apartments and cottages available for weekend breaks and full week stays handy for just watching or when sailing in the winter is fine but sleeping on the boat isn’t.
