BLUEBIRD IS COMING HOME TO CONISTON

K7 BLUEBIRD

Iconic powerboat – Bluebird K7 – will return to its spiritual home of Coniston Water next summer.

The legendary craft was lifted from the lake bed in 2001.

34 years earlier, famed pilot Donald Campbell was killed as the vessel flipped during a waterspeed record attempt.

Following years of work, Bluebird ran at 150mph on the Isle of Bute earlier this year.

It’s slated to take to Coniston Water again between the 19th and 28th of July.
