Budworth sailors put in another strong performance at the Southport 24-Hour Race, organised as ever by West Lancs Yacht Club for the 50th consecutive year.
This special anniversary attracted more entries than for many years, with a fleet of 82 boats – GP 14s, Enterprises, Fireflies and Larks – jostling for clear wind on the crowded marine lake. Budworth, kindly sponsored once again by Preston Audi, put together three well-organised teams, involving more than 30 sailors plus several loyal supporters.

We sail on Budworth Mere, one of the most attractive inland waters in Cheshire. Located near Northwich, this is close to the motorway network and very easily accessed from Warrington, South Manchester and Knutsford as well as other parts of the North West.
