Chosen Charity for Cookies Jester Challenge
I am very pleased to announce the continued partnership with the Sir Francis Chichester Trust for Cookies Jester Challenge. I helped raise funds for this Trust back in 1997 after finishing the round the world voyage. The Trust assists underprivileged Devon youths to take Outward Bound courses - a legacy left behind by the famous adventurer Francis Chichester.
2010 marks the 50th anniversary year of the original OSTAR Atlantic race that Francis Chichester competed in 1960, so there is a close connection with this charity and the fact that Cookie will be sailing the North Atlantic course in the wake of the mighty Francis Chichester.
