You may be aware that 13 year old Ben Tylecote, has been undergoing treatment over the last year or so for an aggressive tumour behind his right eye. This is getting worse and his parents are having to raise £100,000 for treatment in Amsterdam at the beginning of September. The good news is that the gofundme campaign raised £104,889 of the £100k goal in 5 days thanks to 1,758. We now have to pray and hope that the treatment works.

Ben is the son of Steve and Fiona Tylecote. Steve is the author of Team Racing for Sailboats and was the Captain of the GBR Team that won the World Team Racing Championships in the 1990's. He has been instrumental in developing Team Racing at Rutland Water. Ben is an aspiring sailor in his own right. In 2015 he won the Pursuit Race at the NSSA Regatta sailing a Bic O'pen. He has recently been undergoing treatment in America.
