On September the 21st 37 boats from the MBYBC took part in the Bartsbash, the biggest regatta ever. The Bartsbash was held to commemorate Andrew Simpson who died in a tragic yachting accident. This race had approximately 19 000 sailors taking part all over the globe. The wind and sea conditions were perfect for racing and a wonderful day was had by competitors and spectators alike.
Our thanks go to Elfie Holden and everybody who assisted to make this such a big success at the MBYBC. Also a word of thanks to the Bartsbash team for their tireless efforts. For more info go to www.bartsbash.co.uk
