Changing lives

The Moore Barlow Silicon Cup Regatta 2022 has nominated three life-changing charities to raise money for: the Genie’s Wish, the Andrew Simpson Foundation, and the Greig City Academy sailing programme. So far, we’ve raised just over £1 million for worthy causes. Every boat makes a difference, every entry changes lives.

The Genie's Wish

The Genie’s Wish

A newly registered UK charity whose mission is to enhance the lives of people aged 0-40years, living in England and Wales, who are suffering from a critical or terminal illness or living with a life-limiting medical condition.

Greig City Academy sailing programme

Britain’s only inner-city school sail training programme. Since 2014, it has broken new ground in inspiring deprived students, mostly from BAME backgrounds, to transform their lives through sailing at all levels, from dinghies to ocean racing.

Andrew Simpson Foundation

Our fundamental ethos is to facilitate a wider participation in sailing, and to optimise the benefits that the sport can deliver to young people and ultimately to society at large.
