Henry Schein’s association with The Windsor Cup, now in its 7th year, continued this year as two yachts (one from Dental and one from Henry Schein’s Veterinary business) took part in this annual event.
Organised in aid of the Jubilee Sailing Trust, The Windsor Cup is specifically aimed at the healthcare professions and this year eleven yachts took part, competing in two Divisions; cruisers and racers, during the two-day fund raising Regatta held at the end of August.
Conditions were described as ideal with moderate temperatures, flat waters and about 10 knots of breeze that made sailing a real pleasure. And it was in these conditions that Managing Director of Henry Schein UK Dental, Simon Gambold, himself a keen yachtsman, skippered home one of Henry Schein’s yachts in the first of the morning races.
At the end of the weekend, the racing division had been won by Philip Millns in a First 32 called Olketa and the cruising division had been won by Periodontist Philip Dowell in his Moody 45 called Amberjack, a victory that ensured he also claimed the Windsor Cup for 2012.
The Jubilee Sailing Trust was established in 1978 with the aim of developing sailing as an inclusive pastime that could be enjoyed by all, regardless of physical ability. The Trust now has two tall ships; Tenacious and Lord Nelson, both of which have been completely adapted for use by both able-bodied and disabled sailing crew.
Thanks to Henry Schein’s involvement over the last seven years, the Windsor Cup has helped raise over £47,000 for the Jubilee Sailing Trust.
