Barts Bash ran successfully, despite an initial lack of wind, but the sun shone and 42 boats took to the water including 13 intrepid adventurers from Shoreham SC. Thanks to Lancing for not only running it, but delaying the start so that the Shoreham boats could be towed to the race area (and thanks to those that did the towing – Shane, Chris and the Lancing safety boat!).
The race was set for 75 minutes around a trapezoidal course which worked out well, the faster boats (including Wayfarers) doing 4 laps and the slower doing 3. A great day was had by those that raced – Thanks Lancing!
