Barts Bash Fleetwood 2020

Recommended Posts

14 boats arrived for Barts Bash at Fleetwood Model Yacht Club on Sat 12th September. 

It was a mixed class handicap race & competitors were encouraged to donate what they wished into a "Barts Bash" collection bucket.

It was a beautiful sunny day with 15/20 knots of westerly wind blowing down the lake creating lots of waves.

1 Marblehead, 2 IOM's , 3 DF65's 2 Mustangs, and 6 R/C Lasers attended. 

The M, IOM's & Mustangs were one fleet & the Lasers & DF's were the other.

The handicaps were arranged by sending the different boats around different length courses.

After 10 races & several boats retiring due to gear failure,

1st was John Sharman  R/C Laser

2nd was John Plant      Mustang

3rd was  Olly Murray     IOM.

Most reliable boats were the Lasers with all 6 finishing every race.

On counting the donations in the bucket we found that we had raised £100.05 & 20 cents!  to donate to the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.
