A two hour hands-on experience, with lunch moored out on the lake

10.30am – 1.30pm Lunch Sailing Experience

After a tour of Bowness Bay we hoist the sails and enjoy the peace and quiet as we explore Windermere. Sit back, relax and enjoy the amazing scenery or get completely involved with trimming the sails and helming the ocean going yacht.

At 12:30 we drop the sails, find a quiet spot in one of Windermere’s many bays, relax and enjoy a locally sourced lunch and a glass or two of complementary house wine.

A selection of beers from the Hawkshead brewery, speciality wines, prosecco and champagne can be purchased from our on board bar.

We finish with tea or coffee and my Mum’s homemade cake as we motor back to the marina.

BOWNESS-ON-WINDERMERE WEATHER

      A very spontaneous and last minute decision to propose to my girlfriend on Lake Windermere. John stayed in regular contact and together we managed to fool my fiance into thinking that all the other customers he had booked in for that afternoon had cancelled. Not...More
