Easter Sailing (ages 8 to 17)

During the Easter and Summer holidays, Windermere School operates Sailing courses for children aged 8 to 17. Operating from Hodge Howe; the School’s private, lakeside watersports centre, all courses take place every morning from Monday to Friday. Each week long course costs £175.

Our team of qualified and experienced staff welcome students of all levels and abilities. We provide all safety equipment, and can also provide wetsuits and spray jackets if required. Operating in small groups, our friendly instructors are joined by a team of volunteers from the School’s sailing team.

Sailing Courses 

Hodge Howe is an accredited RYA Training Centre where students can develop their sailing skills. Our selection of Bugs, Picos, Lasers, Fevas and Tera dingies enables us to cater for children aged 8 to 17, from beginners through to advanced sailors. Participants will receive a RYA Youth Sailing Log book (or can add to their existing log book).


Easter Course Dates 2019

Our Watersports Courses will take place on the following dates:

  • Monday 8 April – Friday 12 April (9.30am to 12.30pm)
  • Monday 15 April – Thursday 18 April (9.00am to 12.45pm)

Sailing will not take place on Good Friday (Friday 19 April), therefore the hours on the second course are adjusted to compensate for this.

The sailing courses are open to all children aged between 8 and 17 and are not exclusive to Windermere School students.
