Club Regatta, Bart’s Bash & Guinness World Record Attempt
Sunday 16th September
This year is the fifth Bart’s Bash and, like the first, it is part of a Guinness World Record attempt for the LARGEST SAILING RACE IN 24 HOURS (MULTIPLE VENUES). It is also an opportunity to raise funds for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.
But not only is it aiming to be the largest sailing race EVER, it is also always the biggest Club event of the year! Open to all members, families and their guests whatever their ability – we want to get lots of people sailing, even if they have never done it before! If every member invited a friend, what an amazing day it would be and how it would promote sailing and our Club!
Please come along, bring a friend, participate in a fantastic event, become a Guinness World Record holder and have a lot of fun!
In the morning: Bart’s Bash Race: An average lap race using the Club’s normal starts.
In the afternoon: For the adults, a 60-minute pursuit race. For Youth & Junior: a sailing obstacle course.
Please register your entry on the Bart’s Bash website: and start fundraising for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.
There are collecting tins for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation in the bar and in the shop. The entry for the event is £1 per adult competitor and 50p per Youth & Junior competitor (all proceeds to ASSF).
The highest placed participant who has taken part in Get Racing this year will be awarded the Tom Pearson Trophy.We look forward to seeing as many Club members, families and guests as possible on the day sailing, fund raising, becoming world record holders, watching, having fun!
