The Bart’s Bash is a multi-club worldwide sailing event which in 2014 broke the record for the largest sailing event in history with 9.484 boats participating. This year will mark the fifth annual event and participants will not only be competing against boats in their own club, but against thousands around the globe with the world results being posted after the race. Discovery bay Yacht Club and the Lantau Boat Club will hold a joint event which will take place in the waters to the East of Lantau. The aim of the event is to raise money for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation and Sailability Hong Kong.
