We put our shiney new fleet of training dinghies to great use this weekend when Tiree Maritime Trust took part in the Worlds Largest sailing race Bart’s Bash. This annual fundraising event takes place all over the world on the same day and this year over 9000 people took part sailing at 468 venues in 62 different countries. We may have been one of the smallest venues, but we still managed some excellent sailing and attracted some high profile support on Twitter from Olympic Sailor Luke Patience – @TireeMaritime @BartsBash amazing!
The Tiree Results were as follows
|Position||Skipper||Sail Number||Crew||Bart Speed||Time|
|1||Andrew ‘Sandy’ MacIntosh||11185||John Vale||1.88486||15 Min 38 Sec|
