Charity Launches To Honour Olympic Hero
A charity, set up in memory of Olympic sailor from Dorset, officially launches today.
The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation will help get children into the sport.
The 36-year-old from Sherborne was killed in May while training for the America's Cup in San Francisco Bay.
He was sailing with the Swedish Artemis Racing team off the coast of California when the catamaran capsized.
He left behind his wife, Leah, and two sons, Freddie and Hamish.
Founded by Sir Ben Ainslie, Iain Percy OBE and Andrew’s wife Leah, the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation will work to honour Andrew’s life and legacy by encouraging youngsters into sailing.
At grassroots level it will encourage children to visit their local sailing clubs and ‘give it a try’ by providing equipment and coaching, with support from Olympic medalist regional mentors.
