Ullswater Yacht Club is putting the 'VOOM' into an open weekend of racing especially for keelboats on October 22 & 23.

The VOOM Keelboat Weekend welcomes Tempests, Flying Fifteens, VXOnes and SB20s for a seven-race two-day event. UYC has a long tradition of keelboat racing. Flying Fifteens were among the first boats sailed at the club when it was founded in 1958 and Tempests have been an established class since the 1960s.

The 2022 Keelboat Weekend is also the Tempest National Championships.

The Keelboat Weekend is sponsored by VOOM Sports Nutrition, a Lake District company whose CEO is long-time UYC Tempest sailor Robin Higgens.

As well as two days of competition there will be special Saturday evening meal of Cumbrian Beef or Vegetarian Stew with local produce and a dessert.

Registration will be in the clubhouse on Saturday from 9am to 10.30am and a competitors' briefing will be held at 10.30am.

A maximum of 7 races will be sailed over the weekend with the earliest start of 1pm on Saturday, October 22. The earliest start for races on Sunday will be 10.30am.

Booking for the event, camping/campervans and the Saturday evening meal is on the UYC website: ullswateryachtclub.org/event/522585
