Thursday the sailing community and the world lost a hero when Andrew “Bart” Simpson, a two-time Olympic Medalist from the UK lost his life aboard the AC 72 Artemis on San Francisco Bay.

The sailing community is small and tight and there are a lot of grieving hearts today. Thursday was another gorgeous day on the Bay and yet we are reminded of how quickly life can change and how we must remember to hug and love those closest to us, everyday.

Sending oceans of love and light to the family of Andrew Simpson.
