Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In 2021, I competed in the Rolex Middle Sea race, one of a number of challenging offshore yacht racing’s events.  I dedicated this race to the Chandran Foundation who provide invaluable support to those less fortunate than ourselves, a charity close to my heart and the #FrankhamConsultancyGroup.  Many of you supported me and the difference you have made to the lives of under-privileged children has been amazing - Thank you.

On 20th February 2023, I will be embarking on a new, equally challenging offshore race, the Rolex Caribbean 600.

The Caribbean 600 is a major 600-mile offshore yacht race, part of a series, of offshore races for example the Rolex Fastnet, the Rolex Sydney to Hobart, the Rolex Middle Sea Race and the Admiral’s Cup.  The RORC Caribbean 600 race is one of the best offshore races in the world but can also be one of the most challenging and every crew member must have experience of sailing a boat offshore and be prepared to encounter heavy weather. 

RORC Caribbean 600 Series will be based in Antigua from 14th to 24th February 2023, and will include three days of inshore racing followed by the main event; the 14th edition of the RORC Caribbean 600. 

As with the Rolex Middle Sea Race, I’m dedicating this race to the Chandran Foundation, and I would be really grateful, if you would help me raise much needed funds for this charity, depleted heavily by the pandemic.  Any amount, irrespective of the value, will be appreciated. 

Many thanks for your continued support.
