Your Legacy

Bart lives on through the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation – support us and leave your own legacy.

Andrew “Bart” Simpson died at the age of 36, in an accident on board an America’s Cup yacht in San Francisco Bay.

Andrew was a professional sailor who won Olympic Gold and he was an inspirational figure to many young people, on and off the water.

Andrew left behind his wife, Leah, and two sons, Freddie and Hamish who share Andrew’s memorable smile.

Andrew is still greatly missed by all that knew him, and those who were inspired by him but never met him.

He may be gone but he will never be forgotten.

Thanks to Sir Ben Ainslie, Iain Percy and Bart’s family, his name and achievements live on through the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation – a thriving charity that uses sailing to challenge and change children and young people’s lives.

If you would like your legacy to be a powerful force for change, please consider supporting the Foundation in your Will.

Your gift will allow us to ensure that any child or young person can enjoy the challenges of sailing.

Your gift will remove barriers to participation – financial, physical, learning disability, mental health or social.

Your gift allows us to use sailing to develop skills and capabilities in young people so they can participate in society as responsible and valuable citizens.

We value any support you feel able to give us and are happy to discuss our work, its benefits and the ways you can help.
