National Lottery Funding Awards A Disabled Institution

December 13th, 2014 — 3:37pm

A grant of £49824 has been awarded to The Disabled Sailing Association or DSA so that they can buy an adapted sailing yacht to fulfill their new project: Freedom 2. People’s Millions gave the charity the funds.

The people’s funds are an initiation between the ITV and Big Lottery Fund and it is the members of the public that decide the winners for every year.

The money is going to be utilized in project Freedom 2 to buy an equipped Hanse 345 so that they can accommodate more disabled people. Shirley Musgrove of DSA said that they have been trying to raise this money for a long time now and the amount is so fulfilling that every member is extremely pleased.

The fundraising program has been going on for the past two years as grants came from different organizations and also some donations from the local people. This new yacht will have a custom designed ramp which will also be added to the swimming platform of the boat to make it accessible to the disabled. There will also be two steering wheels: the instructor and a crewmember that can sail.

Shirley Musgrove said that they have many such people who have never gone out to sail but this time they will and even if they get only an hour of sail, they come back with a big smile on their face as it gives them more confidence.

The charity received the good news yesterday morning in Torquay where their yacht Freedom is anchored at the pontoon. The organization has a Hanse 350which was also bought using the funds given by People’s Millions in 2007. There will be a competition to select the best name for their yacht in a few weeks.

The charity works to encourage the integrity of the society as well as teamwork and confidence. On top of that, the sailors get the taste of freedom.

Southampton Boat Show’s Grand Opening

October 17th, 2014 — 11:45am

Thousands of visitors gathered at the Mayflower Park to attend the grand opening ceremony of the 2014 Southampton Boat Show. The boat show was inaugurated by Iain Percy (Olympic sailor), Hamish and Freddie Simpson (children of the legend Andrew Simpson), Matt Baker (popular TV presenter) and the kids belonging to the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation who all cut the ribbon together. Iain Percy along with Matt Baker sailed the Tall Ship Phoenix which is perhaps the main attraction of the boat show.

Iain Percy (winner of gold medals at the Beijing and Sydney Games and silver medal at the Olympics 2012 and the current captain of Artemis Racing at the America’s Cup) said that being a part of the boat show without Andrew Simpson was a very emotional experience for him. However, he was really proud of the fact that Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation is the charity organization associated with the PSP Southampton Boat Show.

In order to pay tribute to Andrew Simpson, the Bart Bash is going to take place on the 21st of September, 2014 (last day of the boat show). The Bart Bash is basically an attempt to create a Guinness World Record to honor the memory of Andrew Simpson. It is going to be the largest sailing event in the world.

According to Matt Baker, the boat show gives the ultimate opportunity to the people to experience sailing in the best possible manner. During the launch event of the Sunseeker 86, the celebrity guests who were present were Eddie Jordan (Formula 1 tycoon) and Claudia Winkleman (TV present of Strictly Come Dancing).

The other attractions that are going to keep the visitors at the show entertained are the music tribute concerts that are going to take place on daily basis featuring artists like Beatles, George Michael etc. and the 100 ft high PSP Southampton Boat Show Eye.
