Bart’s Bash is when the world goes sailing… together

• A global sailing race taking place at 100s of venues, with 1000s of sailors in 100s of different classes of boat around the world
• Open to all sailing clubs, yacht clubs, scout groups, sea cadets, windsurfing clubs, individuals and any venue globally that can host a race and is inspired to take part
• Bart’s Bash gives the sailing community a united opportunity to remember Andrew 'Bart' Simpson, a double Olympic medallist who tragically lost his life whilst training for the America’s Cup in 2013.
• The annual fundraising and participation campaign promoted by the Andrew Simpson Foundation (ASF)
• Each individual event is organised by a venue which is the organising authority for all activities at their site
• The event was founded in 2014 and verified by Guinness World Records as ‘The Largest Sailing Race in the World’.
• Sailing venues around the world engaged with the campaign by agreeing to organise a sailing event during the Bart’s Bash period (16th- 17th September 2017).
