Digital wallets out! Racing on Saturday 10
th & Sunday 11th September will be Bart's Bash, raising money for the Andrew Simpson Foundation (ASF). The Foundation is inspired by Olympic gold and silver medallist Andrew 'Bart' Simpson MBE, sadly lost in San Francisco Bay whilst on America's Cup campaign. The ASF mission is to transform lives through sailing, supporting young people from all backgrounds to experience sailing, gain qualifications and develop key life skills. We hope to amass a sizeable donation from members over the weekend and exceed the amazing donations of over £700 that we achieved in 2021.
No special entry is required by members to participate. However, for a sailor's result to count for Bart's Bash they must make a donation in their name on the BSC Bart's Bash donations page here. CDB #10 (fast, medium and slow), the first race of Sunday's Oppie Cutmill racing and the first race of Sunday's handicap racing will be classified as our Bart's Bash 'race', in addition to being a standard series race as per the calendar.
Bart's Bash results will be extracted from the race sheets. Though gps course measurement and race timings, adjusted for handicap, an average speed will be produced for each boat. The fastest average speed will 'win' the BSC Bart's Bash race. All eligible results will be submitted to ASF for collation into a global Bart's Bash 'result'. You must make a donation for BSC to submit your result.
Anyone can donate via our link. So, mention it to your parents, your friends, your children. Share the link and let's make a big Bosham contribution to sailing for all.
