Lakelovers Supporting Kendal College in Lake District

Lakelovers Working With Kendal College

Kendal College has taken delivery of its own sailing dinghy, for use by outdoor education students in races and open meetings. This has been possible through the generous support from Lakelovers – the self catering holiday cottage company – and Lakeland Limited.

Pictured left to right are owner of Lake Lovers Paul Liddel, student Arwen Spitteri and course leader Mike Cawthorn.

The dinghy gives Kendal College students the opportunity to practise the skills that they have learnt on the course by taking part in races and open meetings around the North West. The first of these will be the well-known Southport 24 hour race over the weekend of 9 and 10 of September, where the team will sail in shifts round the clock. This will be followed by an open meeting at Elton Sailing Club near Bury. The boat will then be berthed at South Windermere Sailing club for the Frostbite Series, which will take place on Windermere during October and November.

Former Kendal College Student and owner of Lakelovers, Paul Liddel said:

“This gives a great opportunity for students who have learned to sail on a course at Kendal College to take part in organised racing, where they may not otherwise have access to a boat and facilities. We are very happy to support the college in this venture.”

Arwen Spitteri, a student who is currently in her second year of studying outdoor education at Kendal College, said:

“The course has been life changing for me, I have really enjoyed the first year and am looking forward with great excitement to another year on the water. There’s no way I would have been able to afford a boat of my own, so this gives me a chance to take part in big events as part of a team”
