Daffodil Regatta, April 14 & 15, 2018

Daffodil Regatta, April 14 & 15, 2018

Lovable Lake District superbrand herdy was created by co-founders Diane and Spencer Hannah 10 years ago and will spread smiles and happiness across the event throughout the weekend as he watches the races along with other spectators and cheers the competitors on from the shore. 

The Daffodil Regatta is open to all classes with racing split into two fleets. All fleets will sail seven races over the weekend with four taking place on Saturday and three on Sunday. Club racers will be joined by visitors from all over the county and beyond and the event is featured in the RS200 and Musto Skiff Travellers Calendar.

There’ll be daffodils galore at the prizegiving as UYC joins in Ullswater’s spring celebrations and Great British Herdy, will be bringing along special prizes for the fleet winners.

Diane Hannah said: “We’re really excited about the weekend of sailing and feel honoured to be asked to bring along herdy to join in the fun. We’ve worked hard to create a brand with real values and it is important to us to give back to herdy’s home as much as we can. Events like these are what Great British Herdy is made for and the kids just love him!”

UYC Commodore Rick Boyce added: “We are really looking forward to the first big event of our special year at UYC and delighted to welcome our first visitors – competitive racers and of course a giant sheep!”
