Mr Monkey sailed all the way up the lake, turned round and sailed past Derwentwater Island, which is only open on a few days a year, then returned to the pier he'd started from. The plan to cool down on the lake worked almost too well, as water kept splashing over the front of the boat.
You can read about boating on Derwentwater at the Keswick Launches website.
