Open Events for 2018

There will be a warm welcome in 2018 for visiting competitors at  Ullswater Yacht Club.

Highlight of the year is the award-winning Lord Birkett Memorial Trophy which this year will be held on the weekend of July 7 and 8. The Birkett is the club’s most prestigious event, won the Cumbria Tourism Event of the Year in 2016 and was voted number eight in the world’s top 50 regattas by Yachts & Yachting magazine.

Last year’s Birkett was so popular that entries were closed at the 230 limit before the day. This year entry is online only via SailRacer and organisers expect it to again be oversubscribed so early entry is advised. Two ACH races cover the length of Cumbria’s most beautiful lake with one on Saturday and one on Sunday and ample space for camping and campervans and on-site catering and entertainment all weekend makes the Birkett a true Festival of Sailing.
