Description

Ullswater Yacht Club is looking forward to welcoming all regulars and new competitors to a bigger and better event in 2021.

The Lord Birkett Memorial Trophy, returns to Ullswater Yacht Club on 3 and 4 July 2021. It was first started in 1963 as celebration regatta in honour of Lord Norman Birkett, who passed away two days after successfully preventing Ullswater from becoming a reservoir in the House of Lords. The club has held the round-the-island race each year since. The Birkett is now the biggest event of the year in Ullswater - a festival of sailing attracting racers of all levels from all over the country.

The quest for the ‘Holy Grail’ of a Birkett win has seen the popularity of the event soar. The Ullswater sailing event has recently ranked eighth in the ‘top 50 must-do sailing regattas’ by Yachts and Yachting magazine.
