Ahoy, me hearties! The spirit of Swallows and Amazons is alive and well at Kielder Water Sailing Club and you are invited to come and experience the joys of lake cruising in vintage sailing boats (walking the plank optional).

The open day is on Saturday 3rd September. Weather permitting, you could find yourself sailing right across the lake to explore creeks and inlets among the trees, or visiting one of the unusual art works located around the lake, which are normally only accessible by travelling for miles on foot or by mountain bike.

Further details are available at – the sailing is free, but booking is essential, either by email (link on website) or by ringing Julie Gibbon on (01434) 344383.

Pemmican, fruit cake and grog will be available for a small charge. Adults, children and dogs are all welcome.

Swallows and Amazons and Kielder for ever!
