Jon Derbyshire

Trustee

Jon has been sailing since he first read Swallow and Amazons, beginning his time on the water in the Lake District.

As a former teacher working in inner city schools in Salford, he was able to combine his competitive sailing with his educational training and went on to coach sailors at the highest levels and ultimately leading the Olympic team in Sydney 2000 where GBR won an unprecedented 3 Gold and 2 Silver medals. Consequently following the tragic death of Andrew “Bart” Simpson, he was invited to become a Trustee of the Andrew Simson Foundation and try to give back to those less fortunate through the activity of sailing. Living near Portsmouth he was delighted to help to continue, build and develop the work that the PSST had begun.

Edward Phillips

Trustee
ed@portsmouthsailtrainingtrust.org

Ed is the founder of Portsmouth Sail Training Trust and is now a Trustee. His role as a social entrepreneur with a number of community initiatives is borne of a long standing faith in the need to raise aspirations of young people to enable them to be the best they can be, no matter what start they have in life.
A keen sailor all his life, Ed and his family all spend much of their leisure time on the water, adventuring together and sharing the joys of sailing with others.
Ed’s career was launched with eight years as a front line infantry officer serving in various parts of the world.  He then joined IBM in 1990 pursuing a career as a leader in IT strategic outsourcing; winning and running a wide variety of contracts across the globe, acquiring skills which, since summer 2013, he now puts to use raising aspirations in inner city communities.

David Gratton

Trustee

David joined Portsmouth Sail Training Trust in January 2015 following his decision to cease being a full time finance executive. David’s decision to build a portfolio of a small number of local clients was taken alongside a long term commitment to PSTT to be its part-time Finance Director and Trustee.

David’s passion for sailing stems from his first experiences in a dinghy though Venture Scouts. Having introduced both sons to sailing at an early age, David has seen how much they have benefitted not only from the sailing itself but also, more importantly, from the life skills, experiences and friendships developed.

David has also worked actively as a volunteer supporting the Royal Yachting Association junior and youth programmes.
