Waterfest Weymouth Harbour Full Timetable Events 6th 7th September 2014

Waterfest 2014 Weymouth Harbour 6th 7th September 2014 Full Timetable
Weymouth Waterfest is a new initiative from Weymouth Bid and will take place quayside in Weymouth's picturesque Harbour.  

On a similar set up to the very successful Dorset Seafood Festival the Waterfest will celebrate and show off Weymouth's Maritime history and present skills. There will be stands around the harbour that will include sailing, diving underwater exploration, crafts, boat building, lobster pot making. There will be interesting ships in the harbour this weekend as well. Of course it would not be complete without some music, food and a drink or two. And besides all the pubs and restaurants that already line the harbourside, there will of course be stalls set up as well.

Barts Bash Largest Sailing Race in the World Weymouth Portland Sailing Academy 21st Sep 2014

Barts Bash Largest Sailing Race in the World Weymouth Portland Sailing Academy 21st Sep 2014
I covered the Olympics in quite a lot of detail in 2012 when this website was "The Olympics are Coming to Weymouth" and it was obvious then that Bart was one of the most popular members of TeamGB.

However there is no way that I can do justice to Andrew Simpson MBE in this blog. But his family, friends, colleagues and team mates are going to do that in a massive attempt at the World Record for the Largest Sailing Race in the World (Multiple Locations over 24 hours) on the 21st September 2014.

The foundation set up in Andrew Bart Simpson's name is now ready to go! This will probably be the most unique day in the history of sailing that there has ever been. That's a big statement I know but sailors from all around the world have signed up. As I write this with 3 weeks to go, 3990 competitors from 643 clubs have signed up to take part. It is a remarkable unity of the sailing community. No surprise really knowing the background, but even so, this has been a huge organisational effort, Huge.

The sponsors are here, a simply inspiring list in itself 

All I can do is give absolute praise to those that have organised this event, it looks enormous, and I am 100% sure you will have the most fantastic day on the 21st September 2014.

Good Luck to all the Sailors taking part all around the World.
