The Birkett is back

Ullswater Yacht Club’s biggest event of the year, the iconic long-distance Lord Birkett Memorial Trophy, is 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.
The entry limit of 160 boats has been reached. A waiting list has been set up on the Birkett website, link 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.
