Cowes Week 2019 - ACF

11 JUL | BY MATT GRIER

Dear Supporters,

We have exciting times ahead as we are all entered and almost ready for Cowes Week 2019 with our 3 ACF boats.

Each of our boats are sailing in a true equality and inclusive environment. We are sailing 50/50, Able and Disabled in the Sonar fleet, racing against other individuals in the inclusive environment of Cowes Week.

Each individual is truly taking part as individuals being supported by the foundation with the opportunity to grow there sailing skills and take part in the prestigious event.

2 more Sonar’s with their owners will be entering also;
Jenny – with Andrew Cassell onboard, our founder and everyday inspiration.
Bertie – 2018 winners with Alistair Barter leading the team. Alistair being a single leg amputee has is a great inspiration for other and with Andy having 2018 off the competition will be strong.

On top of this, other disabled individuals are out racing in other classes independently and very competitively, which we will be cheering on at the week goes on.

This will make an exciting 14 boat fleet, plus a great way to show Cowes Week and the sport of sailing a truly inclusive on the water.
