Vago sailors from across the globe compete in Bart’s Bash #bartsbash

BartsBash

I hope everyone enjoyed taking part in Bart’s Bash over the weekend? If you were unaware of this event – you must have had your head under a rock for the last few months!!

Tens of thousands of sailors from across the globe all raced against each other on Sunday 21st September in the inaugural Bart’s Bash event, to remember the sailor Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson who tragically lost his life during a training incident for the America’s Cup last year.  The event is raising money for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation, which supports and inspires youth sailing projects all over the world.  It was also attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the largest sailing event ever!

2 regular Vago circuit sailors from Hunts SC were also competing at the Southampton Boat Show Battle of the Classes event over thr weekend (also doubling up as a Bart’s Bash race).  So well done to Ed Deacon & Felicity Jones in vago164 who finished 14th and Brian Pitman in vago1444 who finished 31st.

For all you Vago sailors who took part out there you can see how you performed against other Vago’ers from across the world using the links below:

The results are slowly being compiled by the organizing committee (a mammoth task!), so please be patient while the numbers are being crunched.
