18 September 2014Bart's Bash
Bart’s Bash on Sunday 21st September
This is in memory of Andrew (Bart) Simpson the Olympic sailor who died in a sailing accident in the run-up to the America’s Cup. It is both a fundraising event and an attempt to get an entry in the Guinness Book of Records.
Our event will be our scheduled dinghy race on Sunday but at the slightly earlier time of 4.30pm. The aim is to get as many boats racing as possible. Please allow plenty of time to get your boat ready for a 4.30 start.

Notice of Event:
All Highland and Moray Sailing Clubs are invited to send one or more teams to take part in this Junior Team Racing Event which will be held at Lochcarron Sailing Club on Saturday 20th September.
The Gunn Trophy is aimed at Topper Sailors competing in teams of three. The best overall team score over a series of four or more short races will win the prize. There is no entry fee but there will be a small charge for the barbeque at the end of the afternoon. The emphasis will be on friendly competition and team playing. Adults from visiting Clubs will be invited onto rescue boats to help identify sailors and to ensure fair play!
All participants must still be attending School. Scoring will be on a low point system with the aggregated overall score of each team counting towards the final result. There will be no discards.
The trophy is a scale replica of a British Navy cannon. (It is named after the late Douglas Gunn who was commodore of Lochcarron Sailing Club in the 1990s.)
Briefing will be at 11.00am. (Probably 2 or 3 races followed by a short shore break and then 2 or 3 more.) Award Ceremony planned for 4.00pm.
Please Contact Dave Murray on firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries and to notify us of your intention to attend. It would be very helpful if clubs let us know in advance if they intend to participate.
