As an ambassador to the Show’s official charity, the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation, Sir Iain Percy comments on the Show’s support: “I’ve been blown away by all the support the charity has already managed to achieve. Working with the PSP Southampton Boat Show now offers us a great opportunity to attract even more young people to sailing.”
