Bart’s Bash is a global sailing race taking place at hundreds of venues, with thousands of sailors in hundreds of different classes of boat around the world. This incredible event works on the assumption that sailing venues host their races at weekends and we invite them to unite in one colossal global sailing event. Bart’s Bash is open to all sailing clubs, yacht clubs, scout groups, sea cadets, windsurfing clubs, individuals and any venue globally that can host a race and are inspired to take part.
Put simply it’s the day the world goes sailing!
It's a day the sailing community remembers Andrew 'Bart' Simpson, a double Olympic medalist who tragically lost his life whilst training for the Americas cup in 2013.
Bart’s Bash is an annual fundraising and participation campaign promoted by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF). Each individual event is organised by a venue which is the organizing authority for all activities at their site.
