Sunday 21 September 2014 is the day that you have the opportunity to get into the Guineas Book of Records - the world's biggest sailing race is coming to Otley!
As a legacy to Olympic sailor Andrew Simpson (Bart), Bart's Bash is being organised to raise funds for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.
Otley SC will be taking part and we are planning to turn it into a big social event with food as well. As always at Otley, previous racing experience is not required but to satisfy the Guineas Book of Records we need to comply with the event rules.
The Bart's Bash race will be held at 12:30 and we need as many people as possible to take part. You do not need to be an experienced sailor or racing fanatic. The race will take half an hour and club boats will be available for hire. After this you can either have fun on the water or take part in other races.
Instead of providing food we are encouraging people to bring food to share with others.
Participants need to register on www.bartsbash.co.uk to enter. You have to do this yourself and can't just sign on at the club on the day.
