There is now just 1 WEEK TO GO until the BART'S BASH 5th Birthday Weekend (15th - 16th September). This is your day, it's your club's fundraiser and... it's time to prepare and get ready for this EPIC EVENT!

Sign up & take part in Bart's Bash

Here are some of the America's Cup legendary sailors explaining about Bart's Bash.
The emphasis is always on FUN!
Get inspired and get new people on the water!

This is our 5th Birthday and we really hope you have a whizz - pop - bang of a day! Wherever you are in the world - you are united with the global sailing community to become part of the largest sailing race, ever!

Eat cake and be joyful!

There are plenty of ways to bring some added FUN to your event, including Cake Sales, Charity Auction/Raffle, BBQ, Bart’s Buoy Race, Cardboard Boat Races or Fancy Dress... but whatever you do, make sure to bake a cake, put a big 5 on it and help us celebrate our special Birthday Bash!
The funds raised via Bart's Bash have already helped thousands of young people access regular sailing sessions who otherwise would not have been able to. The more funds we can raise together, the bigger the difference we can make in helping the next generation and improve the lives of disadvantaged young people.
