What is Bart’s Bash?
Bart’s Bash was inspired by the memory of Olympic Gold and Silver medallist Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson MBE, a man who was passionate about encouraging and helping others fulfil their aims. Bart’s Bash was created to honour his memory and values, uniting sailing venues across the world to enable and motivate the next generation of sailors.
Since its inception, the Bash has successfully raised funds for the ASF which in turn has helped a huge number of sailing projects across the world. This mass participation event has so far attracted over 60,000+ participants across more than 847 sailing venues in 80+ countries worldwide. As well as encouraging participation this raises essential funds to enable the Foundation to deliver on its key charitable activities:
– Manage, organise and deliver Bart’s Bash – the world’s largest mass-participation sailing event
– Carry out ground-breaking research into the benefits of regular sailing participation
– Deliver seven community sailing programmes across four sailing and watersports centres, breaking down barriers to participation.
– Train Volunteer Coaches and Instructors.
– Provide practical assistance and small grants to other likeminded, not-for-profit sailing organisations.
