Chris and Tina Dear with Councillor Anne Jones and Commodore Andy Solkhon inspecting the Matt Trophy at the Alexandra Yacht Club.

This trophy was donated to the Alexandra Yacht Club in memory of our beautiful son Matthew.

This is the third year this race has been held. The race is an Open event for any cadet/junior or person under the age of 18 can take part. The trophy is to promote sailing for young people. The race will take place under the Alexandra Yacht Club rules. 

Application forms can be obtained via the club or clicking on the PDF to print out a paper copy.

For any more information 01702 340363 or contact the Club.

As Matthew loved his sailing days we hope this trophy will encourage cadets/juniors and young people to race and for us to carry on raising awareness of the risks of anabolic steroids, so his life has not ended in vain. If we can give one person an informed choice then this will be a positive thing from such a devastating tragedy.
