Bart’s Bash, Sunday 17 Sept 2017

L Notice ((6/09/2017)

In summary – a few administrative details including that all the yachts will have the same start.  I have also delayed the starts by 1 hour to make best use of the sea-breeze as the winds are forecast to be light.    Please could you add this to the website.  I have also changed two of the courses slightly so that if the wind dies, we don’t have to tow the beach cats miles. 
The courses look complicated.  This is as a result of the Bart’s Bash SI requirement to have the finish and start lines the same.  If we have to shorten, we won’t be able to be a part of the overall results.

The Bart’s Bash is a multi-club worldwide sailing event which in 2014 broke the record for the largest sailing event in history with 9.484 boats participating. This year will mark the fourth annual event and participants will not only be competing against boats in their own club, but against thousands around the globe with the world results being posted after the race. Discovery bay Yacht Club and the Lantau Boat Club will hold a joint event which will take place in the waters to the East of Lantau. The aim of the event is to raise money for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation and Sailability Hong Kong.
The Andrew Simpson Foundation is named in memory Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson, an Olympic Gold Medallist sailor who tragically lost his life while training for the 2013 America’s Cup. During his life, Bart was enthusiastic about raising awareness of sailing and encouraging young sailors to the sport. The Foundation named after him raises cash to encourage and enable young and disadvantaged sailors around the world. In 2016, the foundation made a substantial donation to Suability Hong Kong for the purchase of essential equipment.
