The first official fundraiser for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation is taking place this evening in San Francisco, the Andrew Simpson America’s Cup Dinner.
The Foundation was formed by America’s Cup stars Sir Ben Ainslie and Iain Percy OBE in honour of their close friend Andrew Simpson who tragically lost his life in a training accident on San Francisco Bay in May.
For those unable to attend this prestigious event, you can still take part in the live and silent auctions helping to raise money for this great cause.
Key lots include:
- A signed bike used in the Tour de France by Sir Bradley Wiggins during his triumph last summer.
- A portrait of The J Class Yacht “Ranger” by celebrated maritime artist Martyn Mackrill.
- Ben Ainslie and Iain Percy as the ‘Ultimate Afterguard’ for a regatta.
- A signed guitar by the Kings of Leon.
You can view and bid on all the lots by clicking here - http://www.andrewsimpson-auction.com/ - which includes exclusive signed merchandise and VIP experiences from the 34th America’s Cup.
