Bart’s Bash

Bassenthwaite is taking part in the Global Sailing Event ‘Barts Bash’ at 2.30pm on Saturday 16th September 2017.  I am sure you are all aware of the events history which is now in its 4th year and is the largest sailing event in the World. The Andrew Simpson Foundation raises funds to support sailing as shown below.

What we do

Our fundamental ethos is to facilitate a wider participation in sailing, and to optimise the benefits that the sport can deliver to young people and ultimately to society at large. Importantly, we seek to be as inclusive as possible by encouraging participation to children and young people from all backgrounds, and catering for a range of physical and educational abilities.

How to take part

All members are encouraged to take part in the Bassenthwaite Bart’s Bash Race, it’s about having fun and raising some funds for a worthwhile cause. You also have the opportunity to compete against thousands of other sailors worldwide. Details of how to sign up are on the following link where you can also make a donation to the charity.

Let’s try and get as many boats on the water as we can, all are welcome.

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
