They are very keen to provide a service for everyone so if you have any specific dietary requirements, please let us know prior to the event. ([email protected])

Trident UK will be on site for the majority of the week to provide an onsite chandlery service. We are very pleased to have the support of Trident UK again for Bass Week 2018 and we hope that you will utilise their services. If you would like them to bring orders over for you, please contact them before the event.

Entries Now Open!

Entries are now open for The ONE Bassenthwaite Lake Sailing Week 2018.

The Bass Week team have been hard at work for many months to ensure that this years regatta will provide both members and visitors with yet another excellent event.

The racing programme will follow the usual format of 17 races – these being a mixture between small series, one off races and all fleet pursuits for dinghies with a PY in the range 847-1432.

This year also sees the introduction of “The Dragon Force Derby” for those of you with DF65 model yachts. This event should hopefully prove to be a popular addition for both the participants and spectators!

We have a full social programme planned with a very varied selection of evening events. So there should be something to suit everyone. More information will be given on arrival at Bass Week 2018 regarding the additional daytime and evening activities on offer.

We are very pleased to have Alfies Outside Caterers as part of the Bass Week team this year. They will be providing hot/cold meals, drinks and snacks throughout the racing days. The menus they have produced sound fantastic so they should keep us all very well fed and watered throughout the regatta. As usual there will be a welcome evening meal on Friday 3rd August which is a pre-bookable meal via your online entry.

If you have any food allergies or intolerances please could you let us know via [email protected] or comment via your online entry form, as the caterers are very keen to ensure that they can provide a service for everyone.

The Bass SC bar will be well stocked, and staffed throughout the week, and the introduction of a card payment system should make life easier when you run out of cash!

Our grounds team have worked hard throughout the winter and will continue to do so throughout the summer in the run up to Bass Week 2018. This will ensure that the club site is at its best for your arrival. We have already made several improvements to the site based on feedback from last year.

We hope to see many old friends returning for Bass Week 2018 and also many new faces. If you have any questions regarding the event or entry please contact us via [email protected]

We look forward to seeing you all in August. Happy Sailing.

Naomi Smith (Vice Commodore) and the Bass Week team.
