The Birkett is back

Entries are now open Ullswater Yacht Club’s biggest event of the year, the iconic long-distance Lord Birkett Memorial Trophy, on July 3 & 4.
The quest for the ‘Holy Grail’ of a Birkett win attracts keen sailors from national champions to novices in a huge range of different boats. It has become a festival of sailing, popular with racers from all over the country who will be delighted that it is back on the racing calendar this year.
The club has set up a separate Birkett website for information about the event and to enable entrants to book and pay online for race entries, camping/ motorhomes and catering. Entry is open to monohull dinghies and keelboats with a PYN rating below 1340 and under 25ft 6inches overall length. There will be an entry limit of 160 boats so competitors are advised to enter early. See link to Birkett website below.
The club is pleased to announce that the 59th Birkett has a new major sponsor – Waitings, a Penrith company in Wind, Water and Waste projects.
