Bart's Bash is a global sailing event raising funds for the Andrew Simpson Foundation and verified by Guinness World Records as 'The Largest Sailing Race in the World'. Bart's Bash is the day when we especially remember and race in memory of Andrew Bart Simpson, the double Olympic medallist who tragically lost his life whilst training for the Americas Cup in 2013. Since its launch in 2014 more than 1000 venues, 70,000 sailors across 80 countries have participated. Banbury Sailing Club has been very successful at participating and raising funds for this fantastic cause over the years.
