Bassenthwaite Sailing Club
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.
The unrivalled scenery provides an area for touring and walking. There are many hotels and boarding houses within a short distance as well as caravan and camping sites. Eating places are plentiful.
The Clubhouse is a modern building benefiting from good views over most courses, good changing facilities (including hot showers!), a family/function room, well equipped galley and licensed bar. The large grounds readily accommodate campers and caravanners during open meetings.
The Club has been established since 1952 and is dedicated to encouraging sailing and racing at all levels of competence.
