Bart’s Bash This Weekend

Bart’s Bash is set to kick off this weekend’s global sailing event to promote disabled sailing

Thousands of sailors across the world are poised to take part in the third annual Bart’s Bash, THE global sailing event being held this weekend in aid of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF) and DWSC is part of it.

Over 330 yacht clubs and sailing venues in more over 56 countries are signed up to participate this year, in memory of Olympic Gold medallist Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson (crewing for Iain Percy in the Star class 2008 Summer Olympics, Beijing) who tragically lost his life in a sailing accident whilst out training in San Francisco Bay in 2013.

Sailors taking part in Bart’s Bash are raising funds for the Foundation whose very specific objective for 2016 is to promote awareness for, and the further development of, disabled sailing globally.

Please make sure you are part of it at Datchet Water SC this Sunday 18th September.
