Registration Open for Bart’s Bash 2017
Published on July 20th, 2017
Registration has now opened for sailors wanting to take part in this year’s Bart’s Bash, which takes place over the weekend of September 16-17, 2017. The charity, set up in memory of Olympic sailor, Andrew Simpson, aims to improve the lives of young people through sailing.
Bart’s Bash is the biggest sailing event in the world, backed by the likes of America’s Cup stars Sir Ben Ainslie and Iain Percy, Olympic sailors Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark and legendary French yachtsman Loïck Peyron. Last year, around 7,300 sailors from 58 countries took part, helping to raise tens of thousands of pounds for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF).
This year, it looks like the annual event will be bigger than ever, with 564 venues registered to take part in 74 countries. Sailors wanting to take part are now being invited to register for Bart’s Bash.
