John Merricks Sailing Trust
Who we are
Without financial support from other people, 1996 Olympic 470 Silver Medallist, John Merricks would never have been able to fulfil his ambitions and demonstrate his remarkable talent for sailing. Set up by those closest to John following his untimely death, The John Merricks Sailing Trust seeks to help other young sailors (under 25) achieve their goals. Since 1997 the John Merricks Sailing Trust, a registered charity, has supported youth sailing by awarding grants to deserving individuals, clubs and youth organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to sailing and financial need. The John Merricks Sailing Trust is proud to be Supporting Youth Sailing in the United Kingdom.
