61st Birkett, July 1 & 2, 2023

Ullswater Yacht Club’s biggest event of the year, the iconic long-distance Lord Birkett Memorial Trophy, is on July 1 & 2, 2023.
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. More than just a race, it has become a festival of sailing, popular with racers from all over the country.
There is a separate Birkett website for information about the event.
