100 days to go
It’s 100 days until Bart’s Bash. What started as an ambitious idea has metamorphosed into the biggest sailing race of all time. I spoke to the organisers about its shift from vaguely ambitious idea to incredibly complex reality for the July issue of Yachts and Yachting (out now). It’s kind of like trying to host an event as big as the London Marathon, in Year One, whilst also having to make up an entirely new set of rules for running, and then duplicate it all over the world. I don’t envy the team behind it given the enormity of the task, but nothing worth doing was ever easy, right?
