Sailing / Yacht Club
Bassenthwaite Sailing Club is privately run by its members for the use and benefit of the membership. It is privileged to enjoy the right to sail on the ONLY lake in the Lake District, there is no public right of navigation over the lake and it is undisturbed by motor boats other than rescue craft. A really beautiful inland sailing water surrounded by the northern fells of The Lake District National Park. One of the largest Cumbrian lakes 4 miles in length and three-quarters of a mile wide, the lake lies generally north to south. Its peace is undisturbed by power craft except those used for rescue. Winds mainly SW but often SE or NW giving long legs and superb courses.
