bash it for bart


The Nyack Boat Club, located in the picturesque river-front village of Nyack, New York, currently leads in the number of participants registered for Bart’s Bash with 122 members and 58 boats signed up for the September 21st race.

Bart’s Bash, named for famed Olympic and America’s Cup racing sailor Andrew “Bart” Simpson, is organized by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF) and is set to be the largest sailing race in the world. With over 5,000 sailors registered to race in almost 700 venues across the globe, this event is raising funds to support the ASSF. Through sailing, the Foundation’s goal is to help young people develop life skills that will improve their ability to succeed in life and provide access to jobs and careers within the maritime sector.
