SAIL FROM THE HEART 2008

SUNDAY 10 FEBRUARY 2008

A VALENTINE’S SOLO SAILING CHALLENGE
AROUND BARBADOS – SINGLE HANDED – ONE ARMED

Andrew Burke, one of Barbados’ top sailors, boat designer and builder, lost his left arm to cancer in 2005.
Despite his loss and subsequent diagnosis of cancer in his heart, Andrew has retained his courageous spirit, successfully competing in regattas throughout the region and constantly modifying his boat to achieve maximum performance.
On Sunday, 10 February 2008, he will challenge the elements as he attempts to sail solo around Barbados, in an effort to raise awareness and funds, on behalf of persons stricken with cancer.
Donations should be sent directly to the Barbados Cancer Society, Henry’s Lane, St Michael and identified with Andrew’s name.
