Hoist the sails! Beginners' sailing sessions at the castle

A sailing boat on Windermere

Wray Castle has teamed up with Windermere Outdoor Adventure Centre for taster sailing sessions throughout the summer holiday.

Pull on your buoyancy aids and join the crew on a traditional sailing boat – you’ll be part of a team of keen recruits on board, including a tactician, a helmsman and a jib sheet crew. What will your role be?

This is the perfect family activity for any budding skipper, there’s a family boat for children aged between 3-16 or for the more intrepid adventurer a ‘kids only’ boat for children aged 7-16. No sailing experience is needed, these sessions are for just for you try your hand, learn a new skill and hopefully find something you enjoy!

Sessions run every Tuesday and Thursday until 30 August at various intervals throughout the day and include approximately one hour on the lake. The cost is £12 per person and booking is essential. For session times and to book your place please visit our what's on page.
