The countdown has begun. There are now less than 2 WEEKS TO GO until the big Bart’s Bash weekend kicks off once again.

Now is the time to prepare and get ready for this Epic Event.

No matter how big or small your sailing club is, there are plenty of ways to bring some added FUN to your event, including Cake Sales, Charity Auction/Raffle, BBQ, Bart’s Buoy Race, Cardboard Boat Races or Fancy Dress.

As ever, there is no fee for being part of this incredible results service but if you as an individual sailor truly want to help make a difference, we hope you will make a donation to be a part of it.

Of course everyone can make it so much more than that – you and your venue can raise more money for the charity through sponsorship or other fund raising events on the day. Our partner,, is a charity fund raising website that will collect your sponsorship money on our behalf, making it very easy wherever you are in the world.

The Bart’s Bash website includes the video, the whys and wherefores behind this extraordinary event, how and where to sign up, useful resources about how to fundraise and also information about how your donations and the monies raised is spent.
