Another Christmas, another Boxing Day Bash at Budworth Sailing Club in aid of RNLI. We look forward to welcoming sailors and spectators from across the North West and beyond to a festive day of handicap racing.

Sail off all that turkey, Christmas pudding and chocolate and get some fresh air out on the beautiful Mere here at Budworth, or simply enjoy the social from the shore, with all proceeds going to the RNLI.

Pay on the day or via the website. We look forward to welcoming you!
