IAIN PERCY (GBR)

 Nomination
The team behind Bart’s Bash, led by Iain Percy, aimed to raise around £20,000 with their new event in honour of a wonderful friend... as we went to press the running total stood at £276,610 with 26,879 the latest tally of sailors having taken part in the event in the many nations all around the globe. To reach out so far demanded extraordinary work and co-ordination – and the Artemis Racing CEO was not found wanting
 Why they won
