Two tragedies, two memorial services:
Celebrate and mourn for Andrew James ‘Bart’ Simpson, MBE at his funeral service at Sherborne Abbey, Dorset, on Friday 31 May at 1pm, followed by a celebration of Andrew’s life at Sherborne Castle. Bring any photos you have of Andrew for his memory wall. With Artemis asleep at the wheel again, we thank the RYA for publicizing the news; those of you who’d like to donate should follow the RYA link for more information on the family’s wishes.
Anyone closer to the North Pole should think about celebrating Magnus Olssen’s larger-than-life aboard the Djurgårdsvarvet. We’re not entirely sure what or where that is, but we assume it’s somewhere in Sweden, and we further assume that it will be a hell of a party on June 16th. Find out more info here, including info on a new Foundation in Mangus’ name that will help get more Swedish youngsters on the water.
