Raven to join in 50th Lord Birkett celebrations

Raven to join in 50th Lord Birkett celebrations

On Saturday 7th July Raven will depart from the pier at Pooley Bridge at 12.30 pm.  It will then be stationed in the vicinity of the Lord Birkett Trophy start line. The race is scheduled to start at 1.00 pm, weather conditions permitting.

Raven will steam ahead of the fleet and will be positioned off the Lord Birkett memorial plaque on Kailpot Crag.  All 200 plus boats will sail past between the shore and Raven, with the 50th boat receiving a special trophy kindly donated by Ullswater Steamers.

The fleet will then continue their race to one of the islands at Glenridding, before returning to Pooley Bridge, finishing at Ullswater Yacht Club.

The steamer will return to Pooley Bridge at 3.30 pm.

Tickets to witness this unique event are now on sail from Ullswater Steamers. The price of £20 includes a glass of Pimms and strawberries (non alcoholic option available) Children £10.

Please book direct with Ullswater Steamers website
