Charity

Giving back and supporting the community is hugely for Ben. He is proud to working with a number of causes close to his heart including the 1851 Trust, Andrew Simposon Sailing Foundation, The Prince’s Trust, John Merricks Sailing Trust and the Land Rover BAR Academy.

1851 Trust

The 1851 Trust is supported by Land Rover BAR, the team vying to bring the America’s Cup back to Britain – a trophy that left these shores in 1851.

The Trust aims to inspire and engage a new generation through sailing and the marine industry, providing young people with the education, skills and training to become innovators of the future, and stewards of the marine environment.
