The Quay,


This year marks the 125th anniversary of Burnham Week which offers visiting yachtsmen’s tactical river sailing at its very best.

Commencing on Saturday 26th August, Burnham Week maintains its traditional slot in the sailing calendar as the last big regatta of the year held across the Bank Holiday weekend. The week is a spectacle for both sailors and non-sailors with the annual Quay Day held on Bank Holiday Monday.

Growing out of a small town regatta, Burnham Week became famous in yachting circles for sailing, but also for its friendly and inclusive social scene. This year will be no different with racing set for all types of craft; dinghies to ocean going racing yachts; single or multihull; and all craft between. Competitors can enter one to eight days of glorious river racing. With such an historical regatta there are cups galore to be won for each class, ranging from some prestigious silverware to some rather unusual trophies.

Racing is under the experienced control of Race Officer Edwin Buckley and a new back office team this year, bringing together the very best of Burnham.
