It is with great sadness that we learned that Andrew Farrow had passed away.
Andrew was a wonderfully gifted man who we came to know as a beneficiary of our grant programme. SSIT helped fund the purchase of his boat and Andrew did so much to spread awareness of our grants to others. It was a real pleasure working with him and following his journey through sailing.
He wrote a beautiful, and at times painfully raw blog about sailing and the difficulties faced by those with a spinal cord injury. It was clear that sailing was everything to him: “Sailing is joy” he said, “It’s changed my life”.
