Entries are officially open for Craftinsure Bass Week, held from the 5th to 13th August 2023. The first 1000 entries are free (joking, April fools!). Everything which follows is true...

For decades Bass Week has attracted visitors from all over the country, renowned for competitive racing on the water, a fantastic social programme for all the family, stunning scenery of the fells and the best view of Skiddaw mountain.

Camping on site makes inclusive entry exceptional value, with nine days sailing and nine nights camping only £223 in total, for two people sailing a double hander and camping on-site in a tent. Camping and sailing for the under 23s who take advantage of the discount is £171.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, the nine-day regatta includes three prize-givings and various spot prizes.

CraftInsure Bass week 2023 will mark thirty five years of Red Seal Rescue supporting Bassenthwaite Sailing Club, providing first class rescue for competitors. Read more about Red Seal here.

Entry is officially open via the Craftinsure Bass Week website www.bassweek.org.uk. We are expecting a bumper number of entries and encourage those with caravans and motorhomes to enter ASAP to avoid disappointment. Significant discounts on entry fees are available before June 4th 2023.
