The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation (ASSF) is the official charity of the PSP Southampton Boat Show.
The charity transforms the lives of young people through sailing. It was founded by Sir Ben Ainslie CBE, Iain Percy OBE and Andrew's wife Leah following the early death of Olympic Gold medallist Andrew 'Bart' Simpson in 2013.
The Foundation offers a unique combination of the challenges of being on the water with the teaching of Bart’s life skills and values to enable young people between the age of 5 and 24 to realise their potential.
Richard Percy, CEO of ASSF spoke to reporter Mary Stanley at the end of the day when Sir Ben visited the Show for the charity.
