Bart’s Bash is the flagship annual event of the Andrew Simpson Foundation, inspired by Olympic Gold and Silver medalist Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson MBE who passionately believed that everyone should have the chance to try sailing and enjoy the many benefits that it brings.
Bart’s Bash is the flagship annual event of the Andrew Simpson Foundation, inspired by Olympic Gold and Silver medalist Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson MBE who passionately believed that everyone should have the chance to try sailing and enjoy the many benefits that it brings. The largest sailing race connects sailing communities all over the world and to date, 1041 venues have taken part across 59 countries.
Salt Hub supports the Andrew Simpson Foundation with marketing support, fundraising strategies, sponsorship opportunities and partnerships for the annual Bart's Bash flagship event.
Our first marketing activity back in 2019 was to give the event it's own microsite, enabling participants to input their own results from races across the world in a range of formats and allowing users to update and manage their own club account annually. All visitors to the site can select and view results year-round via the leadership boards. The website needed to have its own visual identity whilst remaining in keeping with the Andrew Simpson Foundation's core brand.
