Try-A-Wanderer 2023

Join us at Marlow Sailing Club hosted by John and Jenny Renouf to have a go sailing a Wanderer on the Thames. This is the ideal opportunity for non- members to either meet the association or try sailing a Wanderer. Marlow SC is probably the most relaxed in the country on the grassy banks of the Thames, just upstream from Bisham Abbey. Launching and recovery is a doddle, perfect for beginners and experienced crews. There is no fixed agenda….. we tinker with our boats and exchange tips and then have some fun sailing which starts when someone shouts “Go”. More details from John Renouf – 1953jgr@gmail.com

We plan daily cruises to places such as Howtown, Aira Force and Glenridding at the head of the lake with perhaps an odd race.. With Hellevyn raising above the lake, Ullswater is seen by many as the most scenic lake. There will be a full programme of evening social events. Facilities at Ullswater Yacht Club are excellent. There is camping on site with hotels, bed and breakfast, caravan and self catering accommodation nearby. Due to planning conditions camper vans can only stay at the club on Friday and Saturday nights on the Birkett Fields, but there are two caravan sites which all but next door.   Bookings   The day rate is £30 per person a day, with camping at £20 a night (camper vans £25).
