Sailing taster sessions
Interested in sailing? Take to the lake with one of our affiliated clubs, South Windermere Sailing Club, for a free taster session.
- Booking essential
- Free event (admission applies)
If you've always thought sailing looks like fun but aren't sure if it's for you, then here's your chance to try it out. Experts from the Club are offering one free taster session each Saturday morning until 12 October.
Sessions MUST be booked in advance. Email email@example.com for more information and to book, or pop down to the Active Base on a Saturday from 10am to talk to some of the club members and officers about sailing and the Club.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
Pay and display car parks available. National Trust members park free.
£3 up to 1 hour
£4 up to 2 hours
