Budworth Sailing Club in the North West of England is located in the heart of Cheshire. We sail on Budworth Mere, which is is one of the most attractive inland waters in the North West. Located on the ouskirts of Great Budworth village, near Northwich, this is close to the motorway network and very easily accessed from Warrington, Manchester and Knutsford as well as Northwich.
The club has a strong membership of around 300 and racing turnouts are among the highest in the area. This is helped by the club’s policy of accepting only boats of its adopted fleets (see Club Fleets section) and concentrating on class racing.
The range of boats adopted reflect the needs of club members and the water we race on and there is something for everyone, including Juniors.
The Mere itself is a 100-acre stretch of water set in partially wooded countryside.
The whole of the Mere is navigable, but the Club avoids the area at one end bordered by a nature reserve where swans, geese, herons, terns and many other species of wild fowl nest and breed throughout the season.
Development of youth sailing is encouraged, and several members donate their time and expertise to Junior racing and training.

The club also supports wider youth work by making the Mere available to the Cheshire Schools Sailing and Canoeing Association outside the Club’s usual sailing times.
