The Foundation has been given a berth on one of the legs of the Clipper Round The World Race.

The charity, which was founded in memory of Olympic sailor Andrew Simpson, is asking for nominations amongst 18 to 24 year olds.

The competition was unveiled at the PSP Southampton Boat show. Race Chairman Sir Robin Knox Johnston says it will be a great experience for the lucky winner
