BART'S BASH 2017 - 16 SEPTEMBER

- PLEASE SIGN UP FOR BOTH AUTUMN REGATTA AND BART'S BASH TO TAKE PART -

Bart’s Bash the ‘Largest Sailing Event in the World’

The aim of Bart’s Bash is to remember Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson, and to inspire a new generation of sailors. Clubs are encouraged to participate in this global sailing event held on the weekend of the 16/17 September. This year the first race of the Autumn Regatta will be designated as the RHKYC Bart’s Bash. Money raised from sailors’ charity contributions will go to the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF). This year the funds will support disabled sailing and disadvantaged young sailors.

ASSF Trustees Sir Ben Ainslie and Iain Percy OBE are keen to reiterate that, “Bart has provided us with a unique platform and opportunity to unite the world of sailing, bringing together some of the world’s sailing legends and heroes with Club sailors, grass-roots youth programmes and even total novices, all combining to produce this one extraordinary event.”

The RHKYC participated in the inaugural event back in September 2014, and it was the Etchells ‘Dream On’, helmed by Greg Farrell, who was first over the line in a fierce contest with Ruffian Scallywag, helmed by Oliver Cully. After correction with RHKATI handicaps, Scallywag was declared the winner of the first RHKYC Bart’s Bash, with Ruffian Hombre in second and Hong Kong Ffooey in third.

Who will be this year’s Bart Bash Winner?
