The Vienna International Sailing Club have been organizing a Bart´s Bash event since its first edition in 2014! Please see below for a few lessons learnt that they wanted to share with us:
“The first lesson learnt is to engage the right partners. This year, for the first time, our named partner and co-organizer of the event will be Boats2Sail. B2S is the charter company which has already been offering its logistic support, sailing boats and local sailing community connections for a few years.
We were lucky to find a partner that shares our enthusiasm for doing something good by doing what they do best! And also to share the workload with one another.
On the technical side, this year, for the first year, we have created a version of the Bart´s Bash Banner in our local language with pictures from last year´s event. Now, we have a space for local sponsors to appear on the banner and have their visibility in return for merchandise for our raffle and auction. This is a great
We will also always stick to our traditional fundraising activities such as a bake sale, baked by a few gifted hands, auction of merchandise, and our notorious quiz night.
Bart´s Bash firstly became an important club event, and now, thanks to our partners, is raising more and more engagement of sailing in our local community!
We will work towards broadening our reach to the Austrian sailing community as a whole and, in the process, keep on helping local worthwhile organizations and projects.”
