Bart’s Bash has seen more than 45,000 sailors participate at their home clubs in 62 countries across the past 2 years. The event is a great opportunity to raise funds for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Trust, which is focused on encouraging young people to get involved in the wonderful sport of sailing. Donations can be made by each sailor on the website.
Spread the word to your family and friends and let’s see if we can achieve the biggest fleet and fund raising event St Catherine’s Sailing Club has ever seen!
It’s a shame but given the high wind forecast its been decided to cancel.
Next Sunday morning (meeting at 10:00 a.m.) is especially for any juniors that have been training on one of our RYA level 1 – 4 courses this summer.
Lets celebrate that you are learning to sail!
They’ll be some free sailing in club oppis and Pico’s, a few short races for those that would like to. This is also a great chance for parents to find out more about the club and what the next steps are after your training finishes this summer.
Hot dogs, salad and cakes for lunch! Here is the poster with more information Junior Fun Regatta 2016

Gold fleet racers will be experienced sailors and past trophy winners, with the Silver fleet made up of those who have some previous experience of racing.
The Bronze fleet is specifically for novices and first time racers, so come and have a go!
A member of the Sailing Committee will be on hand from 5pm to give advice and assistance if you need reassurance.
