Barton Marine is sponsoring Team Ausome-Lyra to compete in the 2019 Fastnet Race.

The company has provided all the necessary deck equipment required for the team’s Nautor Swan 431, loaned by owner Miles Delap to take part in the 608NM race.

“We are very proud to support Team Ausome in undertaking this challenge and giving the crew of autistic sailors such a once in a life-time opportunity,” said Suzanne Blaustone, Barton Marine MD. “Providing the chance for these young adults to get into sailing and marine activities will help to progress their social skills and teamwork in a world that often excludes their involvement.”

The charity Ausome promotes the personal and social growth of individuals of all ages who have Autistic Spectrum Conditions through an exciting programme of sailing.
