John Munro, Chief Executive Officer for Wessex Heartbeat said “We are delighted to be the Official Charity Partner for Sailing Week 2020! We found our day on the water last year to be so valuable and it helped us make some fantastic connections with some amazing local businesses that will really help us keep people ‘Heart Healthy’ in the Wessex region for years to come. We cannot wait to get back on the water next year and we want to get our hands on one of the cups in 2020 but more importantly we want to get people thinking about how best they can look after their heart and a day sailing really does get your heart pumping!”
