All the organising has now been completed and the 125th Burnham Week is just around the corner. Whether you sail a state of the art racing machine, a classic cruiser or a modern dinghy, or even if you are a coastal rower, there is a place for you at Burnham Week.

Racing from one to eight days all organised by experienced race officers is offered to all – and the social life is anything but tame too!

On shore activity is also on offer for non-sailing family members – especially on Quay Day which takes place on Monday 28th Bank Holiday with stalls and activities for the whole family.
