First day of the 2014 Frostbite Series next Sunday 19th October
The next rally is to Bembridge on the 25th October. We are expected by Bembridge Harbour Master. We will eat on board on Saturday with Dave producing another amazing curry and Ray a yummy veggie option. Others will be asked to help and bring starters and accompaniments. Don’t forget the sun block.
This world wide event was run on Sunday 21st September and created the record for the biggest race ever with over £ 200,000 raised already for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation: - http://andrewsimpsonfoundation.co.uk
There was a race for Cruisers, Victories and Dinghies on Spit Sand with the racing run by Jim Hughes on Condor.
We had a great morning with boats ranging from a 4 metre Laser to a 24 metre Ocean 80. The sun shone and there was a fine wind - perfect.
All information is on the Bart's Bash website: http://www.bartsbash.co.uk

The results will be posted as soon as they have been processed by the Bart's Bash team
The rally this weekend is cancelled. Please accept apologies for any inconvenience. The next rally is now to Bembridge on 25th October and will feature one of Dave White's famous curries.
Island Harbour is a little bit further up the Medina than you might expect, just past the Folly, and unexplored by some of us. There is space ashore to play and a restaurant and bar where we will meet on Saturday evening. It is possible to walk along the river to Newport or Cowes should you feel the need. Contact Dave White or put your name up in the bar. PG

This great seafaring city of Portsmouth once more has its very own regatta
The Portsmouth Regatta. It has not been hosted by the city for many years, since 1908, which is an anomaly that has now been re-dressed. The revival of this historic and prestigious event has been inspired by the occurrence this year of the 150th anniversary of the Royal Albert Yacht Club. It was founded in 1854 in honour of Prince Albert who took a great interest in Portsmouth and in that year the club organised a regatta the major prize being the magnificent Royal Albert Cup.
