The 14-year-old schoolboy from Hampshire organised a charity HISC Pursuit Race.

Junior Billy Vennis Ozenn will hold the races on May 5. They will be open to the public. The fee, which athletes will pay for participation, will be transferred to the account of Simpson's Sailing Foundation, an organization created in honor of the schoolboy's idol, yachtsman Andrew (Bart) Simpson.

Recall that Olympic champion and silver medalist, Andrew Simpson tragically died a year ago during a training race before the America's Cup «». His comrades, Ben Ainslieand Ian Percy, set up a foundation to help young sports enthusiasts. It is this foundation that the young philanthropist is now trying to help.
