A Somerset yacht club is inviting people to take part in the world's largest charity sailing event, which will take place next month.

The Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club, which is based at Cheddar Reservoir, will host Bart’s Bash at noon on September 18.

Last year’s event saw more than 45,000 sailors from 62 countries take part.

The event is hosted in memory of Olympic sailor Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson and is raising money for the Andrew Simpson Foundation.
