Who We Are

Ark Sailing is owned and run by Neil Mulhall (that’s me).

I began working in the outdoors in 2002 where I started as a windsurfing instructor at Windermere Outdoor Adventure Centre (WOAC). I progressed into sailing and paddlesports and swiftly onto the position of senior instructor. After taking a couple of years out to work freelance for several outdoor providers within the Lake District including Ark Sailing, I returned to WOAC  in 2014. The following year I enrolled at the University of Cumbria to study Outdoor Education, whilst continuing my role at WOAC. I graduated in the summer of 2018 and purchased Ark Sailing from Ian Shirra later that year.

Working for myself sailing on Windermere is, I consider a very privileged position to be in. Sailing is a passion which I enjoy very much and being able to teach, coach and pass on my skills is very rewarding.

I look forward to welcoming you on board Ark for your sailing adventure!

All the best
