Bart's Bash sailing charity has sent a huge thank you to Blackwater Sailing Club Cadets who succeeded in raising the amazing sum of £400 for the Andrew Simpson Foundation. Their support for the Foundation was truly appreciated. The young sailors had a great day at the pre Bart's Bash training organised at the club.

The money was raised by the 39 cadets from Blackwater Sailing Club, who took part in a river race training day. There were a variety of different boats out on the water including Optimists, Toppers, Lasers, Fevas and Quests. The training was aimed at getting the cadets ready to race in Bart's Bash the next day, but unfortunately the event which is supported by all the local Blackwater clubs had to be cancelled due to the forecast of stormy weather and force 6 gusts!

Their generous donation helps Bart's Bash to deliver their mission of increasing participation in sailing and improving the lives of young people through the delivery of five key charitable activities!
