Bart's Bash Breaks World Record

The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation broke the record for "The Largest Sailing Race in 24 Hours (Multiple Venues)."

With 3,600 boats participating across 768 venues around the world, the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation smashed the Guinness World Record for Largest Sailing Race in 24 Hours (Multiple Venues). The event honored the memory of America's Cup and Olympic sailor Andrew 'Bart' Simpson, who died in an accident onboard the Artemis AC72 in 2013. So far, Bart's Bash has raised £216,311.94 for the foundation, which "helps young people to develop the personal skills that will improve their ability to succeed in life and to improve access to jobs and careers within the maritime sector."
