We normally hold several Open Events and Series throughout the sailing season (March to December).
NOTE: 2021 Season
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions etc. this year is somewhat different!
We ARE running sailing activities, with particular measures in place to fully comply with Government and RYA requirements and advice. Our sailing, this year, has been impacted by COVID-19. However, with the latest easing of government restrictions we are now welcoming visitors back to our famous open events.
The information below is maintained so that site visitors are are of our "normal" OPEN event schedule.
At regular intervals during the year Budworth holds "Class Open" events for all our adopted classes. This is usually a one day event, but some take place over a two day weekend. Our Icebreaker; Raceboard; Saturday Handicap and Autumn Series are also open to visitors, so we hope you will come and join us.
More details for each event are available on the Event Details page.
