Club of the Year 2017

Club of the Year 2017

The award marks the end of an amazing year for UYC which started deep in flood water damage but ended after a whole series of  highs including - reopening as normal in March; our dedicated volunteers restoring the clubhouse; the Birkett winning Cumbria Tourism’s Event of the Year; attracting crowds to our stall at Penrith Show and signing them up for taster sessions; welcoming 1,000 visitors to our I am Team GB Day and taking a record more than 500 people on the water; Rob Watson receiving an RYA Lifetime Achievement Award from the Princess Royal…

Our magazine nomination said: “We felt duty bound to nominate UYC in this category after they featured twice in our monthly Gold Star awards this year. They were featured early in the year for the way in which members rallied round to get the club open and ready for the new season following significant flooding in December. Following this, they were once again featured for their success of the I am Team GB event, the nation’s biggest sports day, on 27 August.”

Thanks for your help Jamie, Marcia and Kate
