Bart's Bash 2021 Update and Results

Published 13:27 on 16 Sep 2021

Bart's Bash 2021

Last weekend's racing was Bart's Bash, raising money in memory of Olympic sailor Andrew (Bart) Simpson for the Andrew Simpson Foundation. We had 73 boats competing across all of our racing classes from National 18 to Optimist. The CDBs has the best of the wind on the Saturday with 14-17kts in the harbour and Bosham Channel, whereas on Sunday a light 5kts filled in for the afternoon racing in Bosham Channel and Cutmill. Six separate course lengths were measured:

Optimist 1590m

Topper 1830m

Slow Handicap 2420m

Fast Handicap 5530m

Slow CDB 5810m

Fast/Medium CDB 12210m

Handicap-corrected times and course lengths were submitted to the Bart's Bash website to compute a handicap-corrected average speed. Sadly, a slight snafu in measuring meant the Silver Oppie results could not be submitted. Apologies for that. Also due to a quite complicated results upload system, some people may find themselves listed twice.

Unsurprisingly, given the wind conditions, it was the CDBs leading the way. Our results are visible here. The BSC winner of Barts Bash was Izzy Lee in a Scow (48th in the global rankings at time of writing), followed by Phillips/Reed/Watney in a N18 and Judy Roberts also in a Scow.

Well done to all who sailed.

Most importantly, thanks to kind donations, BSC has raised over £700 for ASF, helping to transform lives through sailing. And its not too late to donate. The donations page here remains open. So, if you raced at the weekend and have not yet donated, please consider adding to the fundraising total.

Thank you to all who donated.
