Solo round Britain with Sailing Trilleen

Ian Wyllie is sailing Solo Round Britain to promote the Andrew Cassell Foundation. Ian’s partner in this sail, Trilleen is a Vancouver 27 which fittingly is on her own rehabilitation journey. Ian, Sailing Trilleen, will will stop at yacht clubs and sailing centres along the way to lead a road show exploring how how the Foundation’s approach to Disability Sailing can generate sailors who aspire to excellence in their chosen disciplines whether racing or cruising, and opening up opportunities for future partnerships.

Ian is a beneficiary of the foundation who continues to sail Sonars regularly in the Solent. A Veteran of the Royal Navy injured early in his career, complications of his injures left him in a very difficult situation both mentally and physically many years later. Returning to sailing within the framework of the Foundation, with its whole life mentoring and support approach together with the aspiration for sailing excellence, marked a rehabilitation turning point for him.

The Sailing Trilleen project is working up during 2021, initially on the South Coast, based in Cowes. The Round Britain attempt will launch sometime in 2022. Opportunities to book a stop on the Roadshow will open shortly. For more information fill out the form below:
