South African Yacht Clubs – here’s your chance to participate in a global sailing event.

So just what is Bart’s Bash?

The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation is planning a monster sized attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for ‘The Largest Sailing Event in the World’, which we are calling ‘Bart’s Bash’!

The idea is to have a mass participation club race across the UK and the whole World. We know that pretty much every club has a race on Sunday morning, with all kinds of boats taking part, the goal is to get everyone participating together to create one big event race. If we can get hundreds of clubs taking part, with just their normal sailors racing on the water, we will generate thousands of Guinness World Record Holders in Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson’s name.

Jez Payne from ‘The Bart Project’ commented “It is one of those ideas that has huge potential to be a major, major event that absolutely honours the core of what Andrew was about”.
