With races/activities on the water for families and independent young sailors starting at half past the hour, from 10:30-13:30 and a BBQ from 14:30 followed by an afternoon BBQ.
To join the sailing fun, just turn up on the day. Briefings for each activity will take place by the flag post, at half past the hour. We’re expecting to do an egg and spoon race, relay race and “sink the oppie” competition. Details will depend on the weather.
Age Trophies and Anniversary Cup – 04-Sep-22
Also on Sunday 04-Sep-22 starting from 11am is the annual age trophies race, followed in the afternoon by the Anniversary Pursuit race
Barts Bash – 11-Sep-22
Don’t forget that Barts Bash is on Sunday 11 September as a part of the Family Fun Day, our annual charity race for everyone to raise money for the Andrew Simpson Foundation set up in the memory of Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson, a double Olympic medallist who tragically lost his life whilst training for the America’s Cup in 2013 and whose aim is to bring young people into the sport of sailing.
The event is run concurrently around the world with over 1000 venues in 32 countries and with all of the results amalgamated to find an overall winner. If you have never raced before, this is the opportunity to have a go and possibly even beat Ben Ainslie!
We will set up a simple triangular course and depending on the number of entries, will have one or more starts. You don’t need to have raced before and there will be plenty of people around to help and give advice and so the perfect opportunity to give it a go. The day will culminate with some fun on the water actives in the afternoon.
There will be the amazing Barts Bash barometer trophy to race for and plenty of other spot prizes and so for a donation of £5 to the charity, please register now at the following link. We will collect the donations when you arrive on the day.
We would like to see as many youth sailors and those from the groups on the water as possible as well as all the ‘hot shots’ and ‘cool shots’.
