SPEEDY sailors steered their way around Arrow Valley Lake as part of a world record attempt.

A total of 37 boats from Redditch Sailing Club took to the water on Sunday (September 21) for the Bart’s Bash global race inaugural event, which 20,000 people participated in across 67 countries.

A spokesman said: “The club supported the event with an excellent turnout of 37 boats racing in light winds and lots of sun.

These included a number of rookies and five trainees from our current Royal Yachting Association Level 1 training course, who were bold enough to join in a race with only two days of sailing experience.”

The event has raised about £500 for the Andrew Simpson Foundation, which helps young people to develop the skills they need to succeed in life.
