Entries open for the 60th Birkett

Entries are now open for Ullswater Yacht Club’s biggest event of the year, the iconic long-distance Lord Birkett Memorial Trophy, on July 2 & 3, 2022.
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. This year is the 60th Birkett and the club has plans to make it an extra special ‘diamond’ event and is pleased to announce that our main sponsor is Waitings, a Penrith civil engineering and plant hire company.
There is 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, link below.
