Derwent water

Hello all, are there any restriction concerning going on Derwent Water with a 3.1m sib with an 8hp 2 smoke. And where do I get a permit if needed and cost.

Thank you

No permit or licence required. Usual LDSPB speed restriction but I think its 10mph on there not 10kts.

Be careful, it can be shallow in places, especially around the Caravan Club site at the North End.

Launching from either the car park at the Theatre by the Lake (its a pain if busy) for free or at Derwent Water Marina for a fee (think it was about 10).

Hi
I have launched my sib at kettlewell national trust car park (see link above) it will just cost the price of parking. And has easy access to the lake if you have launch wheels but probably not with a trailer as they have put some logs in the way to stop people parking too close to the lake.
I agree with landlockedpirate be very careful and look out for rocks, but it's definitely worth it as it's a beautiful lake and a fantastic days sibbing.

The tour boats do about 12 kts so as long as you aren't overtaking them, you should stay out of trouble.

Derwent is very pretty but also consider Ullswater. There is a free launch at the Glenridding steamer jetty and parking was reasonable. It's a much biger lake to explore and absolutely stunning scenery. Was there myself last weekend for a great cruise.

Thanks Phil. There is a crowd of "churchy" people going for a walk up Cat bells and unfortunately my wife has had a recent operation on her ankle and is not up to the trek. However I had the thought of seeing them off and greeting them back on my rib. I do have thoughts of Ullswater later in he summer.

I must add that after posting this I opened my copy of my Rib and Power boat mag and started to read it. ☺ only to find out there is an article in the new edition about the lakes. ☺

My mum has just moved into a chalet on the shore of Derwent Water. They have their own private slipway and pontoon
This is a pic taken from the veranda, you can just see the lake in the background. Such a shame, it means I have to push my sib 200 yds to launch it ;-))
