Yesterday 20 boats raced in the average lap race dedicated to Bart's Bash and sailors and members then enjoyed a BBQ in the decidedly post-summer conditions. It was great to see many newer members joining in too.

Members donated online or at the club and profits from the BBQ are also going to the Andrew Simpson Foundation to help community sailing in the Caribbean to recover from Hurricane Irma.   We raised £307 in total - well done to all members who participated in sailing, race management, safety boat and galley!

It's not too late to make a donation: go to http://www.bartsbash.com/united-kingdom/midland-sailing-club and click on donate halfway down the page.
If you have photos from the races, please email me () and we can put them on the club's Facebook page and here on the website..  
The results of the race were
1st: Chris Martin - Solo
2nd: Paul Young and Jan Kimber - Enterprise
3rd: Mike Homer and Nancy Gudgeon - N12
