Bart’s Bash 2017: Raising funds for storm victims

  • Mon, 11 Sep 2017 08:29

Bart’s Bash, launched in 2014, is the world’s largest sailing event that is run by sailing clubs, community sailing programmes, sail training centres, yacht clubs, scout groups, sea cadets and even groups of sailors, all around the world. While the mission of Bart’s Bash is to increase international awareness of participation in sailing, it also seeks to raise funds for the Andrew Simpson Foundation to help offer support. As there were a number of sailing and yacht clubs in the Caribbean that have been affected by Hurricane Irma have taken part in Bart’s Bash in previous years, and had planned to hold an event during the 2017 Bart’s Bash on September 16-17, the monies this year will be coming to their rescue.  Donate hereAndrew Simpson FoundationBart’s Bash
