Cadets! Bart’s Bash briefing

Published by at 4:26 pm under Cadets

Cadets and Parents,

Bart’s Bash briefing is at 11:30 on Sunday (optional)

All cadets welcome who would like to sail.

Meeting at the sail training room.
Nick is going to do the briefing about the Bart’s Bash.
I am going to do the briefing about the Junior Bart’s Bash.
Be prepared, change and rig your boats.

This is a world wide race dedicated to the memory of Andrew Simpson (Bart), olympic English sailor, who lost his life in a tragic accident when training for the America Cup in 2013. He won gold medal in the Star class with his friend, Iain Percy in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and also won silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics. He was the crew. He had brilliant instinct where to go, was also a great tactician. He studied at the University College London and gained a degree in Economics. He started sailing like all of you as a cadet and had many great friends in sailing. The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation is supporting Youth Sailing. Donations are being collected word wide.

Please, pay tribute to Bart by trying your best, with fair sailing, respecting your partner and others on the water. Also consider being kind to younger sailors, showing good example and offering support and advice.

And – first of all – enjoy sailing and being with friends.

See you on the water:
