With spring in the air and a wave of optimism at our feet, Bassenthwaite Sailing Club is tentatively planning Bass Week 2021. The recent government roadmap details a hopeful 'lifting of restrictions no earlier than June 21st'. The Club Council and the COVID Sub Committee is confident a fun but safe Bass Week can be organised. Please save the date Saturday 31st July to Sunday 9th August.

For 50 years Bassenthwaite Sailing Club has welcomed visitors from all corners of the country (and some from oversees - remember the Sri Lankan Enterprise team training for the world championship?) to it's annual Bass Week regatta. For generations, members and visitors continue to enjoy the competitive fleet and handicap racing for all the family in the beautiful Lake District National Park. With camping on site, a wild but inclusive social schedule and fantastic value for money, Bass Week is a bucket list regatta.

How Bass Week 2021 will look is still to be confirmed, but rest assured, if it can happen safely it will happen. Watch this space www.bassweek.org.uk
