Bart’s Bash a great success:

Some of you were lucky enough to take part or see the shore to shore sails on Sunday morning; well done for supporting the Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson Sailing foundation, which was set up “to inspire the next generation through the use of sailing to help young people to develop the personal skills to succeed in life”.
The aim was to make it the ‘largest sailing race in 24 hours (multiple venues)’, as witnessed by Guinness.
The ‘race’, held over 78 countries, with around 18,000 participants, relies on every club sending in their results. Ours are currently being loaded by the Race Team, and should be available to view on  in due course.
We had 62 boats sailing in the Pursuit race, a record for Papercourt in itself, and raised around £300 for the Foundation.
Our race was won by our very own British Paralympic hopeful Alex Hovden.

RYA Club of the Year 2013 Views Around Papercourt Lake



An RYA Champion Club, Papercourt Sailing Club was established in 1961 when sailors reached an agreement with the local gravel extraction company to sail on its water.  With many alterations to the geography of the lake in the early years, our lake currently stands at around 44 acres of water on 50 acres of land.  Papercourt is situated close to Junction 10 of the M25 and just outside Ripley village.

Papercourt offers an extremely friendly, inclusive, family atmosphere with no paid staff; a club run for and by the members with the aim of providing a safe and fun environment in which to develop our sailing skills.  You can join the club as a non sailing individual or family, without owning a boat, learn to sail at very reasonable cost, make loads of friends and then after some training you can get friendly advice about which boat to buy.  Many members have done just that, and then become part of the team training the next generation!
