St. Catherine’s is on to be part of the largest sailing event in the world in a bid to claim the world record. 44 boats have entered, which means we have exceeded the minimum required, so we have appointed an official adjudicator to oversee our race.
We are the most southerly club in the British Isles to be taking part, Barts Bash has even attracted Vendée Globe sailor, Phil Sharp, to vist his home island to race alongside the St. Cath’s crew this Sunday. You can still register online, the more the better so do it now. Race starts at 11, breifing at 10.
Don’t forget if you have registered already then please make a donation to the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation, which transforms the lives of young people through sailing.
Catherine Moisan and the house committee will be putting on a ploughman’s lunch and profiteroles, all the proceeds of which will be donated to the foundation.
Lunch will be served after sailing from about 1pm, so if you can’t sail then please do join us for lunch and contribute to this great cause.
Iain Percy has said that he will personally pay to fly 2 people out to San Fransisco for a 3 night, 4 day trip including £500 spending money and a trip to look around Artemis Racing and have a sail on an AC45, all in honour of Barts Bash reaching our 5000th signed up sailor!! BOOM!! We got your attention now??
SCSC will be using all 4 RIBS for the UBS Regatta and as such we need 8 people to drive and crew them. We also need a minimum of 2 people on the slipway to act as beach master. If you can help please email Will Carnegie who is co-ordinating.
