Bart's Bash, 15 Sept - Don't miss it!
Published 00:00 on 10 Sep 2019
So - this coming Sunday, 15 Sept, sees our annual Bart's Bash charity fund raiser. Fittingly run in conjunction with our neighbours - the Andrew Simpson Watersports Centre (ASWC) - we hope as many of you as possible will come along, support the event, have a great time...and donate lots of dosh!!
This year, we're going for a very simple approach:
1. Normal AM (11.00am) and PM (1.30pm) races/fleets/start times except that our race officer will add in extra starts for Juniors, Oppies and ASWC 'newbies'. Regular racers should - of course - cut these potentially inexperienced sailors a bit of slack!!
2. We'll combine the elapsed time handicap results into one huge (if enough of you turn up!) AM race...and do the same for the afternoon
3. We'll then work out our own Bart's Champions (in each fleet) - combining the AM and PM race results into a series (no discards). Luxury (!) prizes will be handed out at the end of the day.
4. Obviously we can't make Burghfield members pay to do Sunday racing...but we can very strongly suggest that we all make a donation of at least £5 per head to the charity on the day! (...that is the whole point after all!).
So - do please come along and help make this event a success. It'll be a fun event - see you on the water.
