Dreaming of Sailing, or Dreaming and Sailing: Bart's Bash Comes to MYC
During last year's America's Cup, the Artemis team suffered a major tragedy when their catamaran capsized and broke apart. Crew member Andrew "Bart" Simpson was trapped under the wreckage and died. His longtime friends Sir Ben Ainsle and Ian Percy established the Bart Simpson foundation to promote youth sailing around the world.
Anyone wishing to participate in the world record attempt is invited to come down to MYC on September 21. We will have people on hand to record our part of the effort that will be forwarded for certification with the people at the Guinness book of World Records
