Bart's Bash 2018

We had a great day at the Club today with Bart's Bash celebrating the life of Olympic sailor and generally all round good guy Andrew (Bart) Simpson. Lots of members came down to race, to watch and to eat the delightful cakes that seem to appear !
Andrew "Bart" Simpson passionately believed that everyone should have the chance to have access to sailing and enjoy the many benefits that it brings. The Andrew Simpson Foundation honours his legacy with its mission to increase participation in sailing and improve the lives of disadvantaged young people. Bart's Bash is a memorial to Bart, as well as a mass participation sailing event and a fundraiser to support the Foundation in achieving its charitable objectives
The money collected today will be donated to the Andrew Simpson Foundation.

Well done to Patrick who mastered the conditions best and won the race at Yeadon today showing everyone how fast a Topper can go ! We now have to wait to see how everybody did when the all the results from all the Bart's Bash events get combined together !
Thank you to Sarah for coordinating the day, Tony and Jon for running the race, Rachel for the photos  and Glenis and Barabra for making sure we ate the cakes.

Barts Bash - Sunday 16th September

On Sunday 16th September it is the Annual Barts Bash race starting at 2.30.00pm followed by another series race at 4.00. Sarah is thinking we'll have tea and cakes so any donations are welcome.
It would be great to have as many boats on the water as possible....maybe a new record. It is a race but again we can team people up together to get you out on the water.

Come and join in !
