The NSSA had a large presence at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show, held at Alexandra Palace over this weekend 28th February to 1st March. As well as our stand we were able to announce a major investment in the future by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.
Iain Percy, Trustee of the Foundation, flew in from his Artemis America's Cup team base in San Francisco to attend the annual Show and to present a cheque from the Foundation for Twenty Three Thousand Pounds (£23,000) to James Conway, Treasurer of the National Schools Sailing Association.
The money is one of the first major grants made by the Foundation and will be used by the NSSA to fund school aged children, up to the age of 18, to participate in training programmes, regattas and instructor courses throughout the country. It will also fund training, race management and safety courses for volunteers of all ages across the country who currently work with the NSSA to develop youth sailing.
