BRADING Haven Yacht Club is on top of the world.
The club has raised the most money of all the clubs across the globe who have taken part in this year’s Bart’s Bash initiative.
The fundraiser, in support of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation, was celebrated in hundreds of venues, featuring thousands of sailors and a range of different class boats.
Brading Haven and Bembridge Sailing Club came together for the race, although they were a week later than the official date, due to tides.
Brading Haven has raised around £1,300, more than any other club worldwide, while members Will Morris and Duncan Bates are in the top ten individual fundraisers.
The race itself featured nearly 50 boats, a mix of keelboats and dinghies.
Brading’s Peter Hayward and Zoe Wirdnam took their honours in RS200.
Simon Cooper was second, with Grainne Andrews in third.
Emma Gabbani was the top cadet in a Pico, finishing fourth overall.
For Bembridge, Colin Samuelson in Toucan was behind the RS200 but ahead of Joe Robertson and Dominic Samuelson.
The eight One-Designs also had a fun race, with D Orange and William Bland crewing finishing half a minute ahead of James Palmer.
