Bart's Bash Report

Written by
15 boats took to the water in the sunshine and very light breeze. A long course was set with most boats completing 2 laps in around an hour. The shifty breeze saw lots of position swapping right through the fleet with the RS400s leading the fleet. The race was won on the water and after pY adjustment by Mark and Ellie Meadows in their RS400 followed by Andy Spencer in a Phantom and 3rd place Martin Nelson in a Super Nova.
