Racing and Cruising in the River Kent Estuary A new Wanderer event is due to take place at Arnside in August. The village is located in Cumbria on the scenic Kent Estuary south of Kendal. There are view across the estuary to the Lake District Fells. With a wide south west facing estuary, Arnside is a great place to sail. Winds tend to be stronger but more constant than on an inland water. A sea breeze may develop around midday. Tide against wind can result in exciting sailing conditions. The village has a long history of sailing. The estuary was the port for Kendal. The village’s first sailing club was set up in 1852. Arthur Ransome’s Swallow was built in the village and later kept on the estuary by a local teenager. Another of Arthur’s boat Coch-y-bonddhu was used to teaching sailing at a prep school on the sea front.

There is high tide racing on the Saturday followed by the legendary WYC barbecue at the side of the verandah Sunday’s cruise, usually with a pub destination in mind, has a good chance of viewing the increasing seal population at Horse Sand. There is even a wild rumour that free car parking might become a reality.
Following the Downing Street announcement on the 14th June postponing Step 4 scheduled for June 21, I am pleased to report that the next two WCOA events – Whitstable and WandererFest – the first since September 2019, excluding the AGMs – will be going ahead.
