Bart’s Bash is the World’s largest sailing event that is run by sailing clubs all around the world on behalf of The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.

The first Bart’s Bash event saw over 700 sailing clubs from over 68 different countries take part each in their own individual Bart’s Bash race at their location, helping to encourage more people to get on the water and enjoying a day’s sailing.

On September 21st 2014 Bart’s Bash joined together thousands of worldwide sailors in a race to set a new Guinness World Record, raise money for charity, inspire the next generation and remember Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson.

All the funds that were raised during the event will help support the development and delivery of the Foundation’s charitable programmes nationally and internationally. These programmes, conceived with Bart’s and the Olympic values at their heart, are currently being developed and tested at the Andrew Simpson Sailing Centre, which was opened on 9th May 2014 on the Olympic waters of Weymouth and Portland. Pilot programmes, designed to enhance sailing activities and encourage participation, are also being tested in South Africa.

Who is Bart Simpson?
