Bart’s Bash – Sunday 21st September
This Sunday we will be holding a joint race with our friends from the RWYC in an attempt to help set a World Record for the Largest Sailing Race in 24 Hours.
More importantly it is an opportunity to raise money for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation. The Foundation is a charity set up in Andrew’s memory and aims to inspire the next generation of young people through sailing in the UK and around the world.
