The SBA Windermere Week Rally will be held once again at the Windermere Motor Boat Racing Club at Broad Leys, Windermere.  Slipways, berths and trailer parking are available at the Club, as are a bar, rally meals and overnight accommodation.


It is a privileged to be able to use the WMBRC as our rally base.   The Club is available exclusively to SBA members during our rally week; it is a private Club for which we pay day-membership fees.   An implied condition of using the WMBRC is that we support the Manager with our meal and bar purchases.  So please do join in the evening meals offered in the programme; please order these meals on your registration form.


Other meals and activities will be on an individual pay-as-you-go basis.  This year the Manager will provide a wide selection of sandwiches and picnic items (special requests can be pre-ordered) in the jetty kitchen on a cash basis.  So give your wife / partner / crew a break this time and let the Club Manager do your on-board and evening catering.

July 2015  -  Addition to the Rally Programme

On the evening of Monday August 10th Mr Gordon Watson, Chief Executive of the Lakeland Arts Trust, will talk to us after dinner about the status of the 'Windermere Jetty' project - previously known to us as the Steamboat Museum.  SBA Members are encouraged to come and book dinner for Monday night - use the booking form or this special form if you just want to come for that evening only.

Bedroom accommodation is also available in the Club for individual booking (prices are £150 per double room B&B – there may be a discount for booking for the whole rally period.  Book directly with the Manager on 01539 443 284 or email   If you stay at Broad Leys, the day-membership fees do not apply to you.

Boats using Windermere must be registered with the LDNP Authority; you can do this at the office at Ferry Nab where there is a public slipway.  The telephone number is 01539 442 753.  Boats up to 27’ can be launched at Broad Leys.   Boat owners must make the standard SBA-declaration concerning boiler certification and boat insurance.

There will be a bulk order of Welsh steam coal from Frank Burston  (20Kg bags, in sizes: 22-45mm nuts or 44-64mm nuts).   Coal will be supplied at Burston’s rates, plus transport and a small handling charge to cover administration.

Prices have been held as last year, with a few small exceptions.   Contact me if you need a list of hotels/accommodation around Windermere.

Organiser:  Roger Heise
