Bart’s Bash- Sussex Round Up


By William Mills

Bart’s Bash

Bart’s Bash was blessed with superb autumn weather of clear sunny skies and light winds as Sussex sailors took to the water.

Brighton Sailing Club

At Brighton dinghy enthusiasts from Brighton Sailing Club joined in a combined event with others to sail past the seafront piers.

Everyone taking part was asked to donate £5 to The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.

BSC’s sailing secretary Nigel Trinder said;

It is a fun participating event designed to get as many people as possible to get to take part.

Arun Yacht Club

Further along the coast at Littlehampton event organiser Dani Mcternan estimated that as many as 50 boats from their group, co-ordinated from Arun Yacht Club, had set sail.

She said;

It brings together sailors from all different backgrounds aged between 8 and 80 years old.

It is a fantastic day out as well as raising money for charity.
