Easter Regatta/ Mirror Northern Traveller, April 4-6

The club is pulling out all the stops to make Easter an unforgettable one for racers and their families, both on and off the water.

Visitors are welcome from Friday morning and with no racing until Saturday, there’s an opportunity to enjoy everything the most beautiful lake in Cumbria has to offer. Try walking, mountain biking, climbing, take a trip on an Ullswater Steamer – or just relax, soak up the scenery and tuck into the chocolate eggs.

There will be racing for the following fleets:

Mirrors, single and double handers welcome. Training on Friday and Saturday, racing starts on Sunday, entries on Sailscore
Fast handicap, (PN 999 or less) sailed on a windward/leeward course
General handicap, all welcome
Junior handicap, under 15s

The sailing schedule is: Saturday - two races, first race not before 1pm (except Mirrors); Sunday - three races, first race 11am; Monday - two races, first race 11am. Five races to count. The Mirrors will race on Sunday and Monday only with the Sunday results counting towards the Northern Traveller Series.

On shore, the UYC café with its range of delicious home made food, will be open from 8.30am every day and evening meals are planned for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Campervans and tents are welcome to set up on the ‘Birkett’ field from Friday morning.

The NOR and entry form can be found under Events. For further information contact principal race officer - David Sykes (
