The 2016 Bart's Bash takes place on the 17th & 18th Sept.

Bart’s Bash is a global sailing race taking place at hundreds of venues, with thousands of sailors in hundreds of different classes of boat around the world.  The event is an annual fundraising and participation campaign promoted by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF).

Minorca Sailing will be taking part in 'The Worlds Largest Sailing Event' by hosting a race at our sailing centre in Menorca, and entering the results into the Barts Bash.

GPS live tracking from TracTrac.com is used at our sailing centre.  Live tracking allows others to watch during and after racing, while our instructors can study your race starts and tactics.  This useful feedback is discussed during early evening group sessions watching the tracking on a screen.
