We were delighted to receive some news from Australia over the weekend that Olympic Gold Medalists Iain Jensen Aka Goobs and Nathan Outteridge had taken Bart’s Bash winner Chelsea Williams from Lake Macquarie for a ride on their 49er with them. 11 year old Chelsea, a Flying 11 sailor from Belmont, won the event at her local club in last year's inaugural event and took part at Wangi Wangi Amateur Sailing Club.
“Chelsea did a great job with her first time on the trapeze and helming a 49er in 15 knots of wind” said Goobs. Chelsea who appears to now be converted to skiff sailing said her favorite part of the day was “nailing the tack and gybe standing up the whole way and not falling over”.
Tony Bishop Bart’s Bash Event Founder was overwhelmed by the video and said "It's so inspiring. I got a bit choked up when I saw the video, what an incredible experience for Chelsea and how cool was she on helm! ... this is exactly what Bart’s Bash is all about. A massive thank you to Nathan and Iain for offering this awesome prize”.
