Lake district saling

I have just bought my first boat (Red Admiral) and I was wondering if anyone could give me some advise on trailer sailing in the lakes (i.e. where to launch, help with lifting mast, moorings, cost etc). I currently sail her in the north sea just off Sunderland, but wish to trail her to different places.

Here's a link to all the lake user guides, which should start you off...

I'm based at Fairfield Marine on Ullswater with Vega, which belongs to http://www.uccmp.co.uk/
The slip is a bit tricky because its only concrete to the waters edge, then drops away quite steeply, ok for launching but harder to recover!! Next door is http://www.ullswatermarine.co.uk/
They do all launches & recovery for you, for a fee of course!
There are a couple of slipways that belong to campsites and a public slip at Glenridding see http://www.boatlaunch.co.uk/
for details and also at Glenridding is http://www.glenriddingsailingcentre.co.uk/
The best slip on the lake belongs to http://www.ullswateryachtclub.org/
I'll be bringing Vega home at the end of September, but if you need any more info or help next season then don't hesitate to get in touch.
Hope this helps
