EDDIE JORDAN to Take Part in the Axxess Marine Charity Ride 2019
The 3rd Annual Axxess Marine Charity Ride takes place Saturday, September 21, 2019. Axxess Marine is partnering with ACREW to support The Amber Foundation to help fund the work they do for homeless youth.
“We are very excited to be working with ACREW and the Crew Awards to support the Amber Foundation this year,” said Andrea Carmichael, COO of Axxess Marine. “Having Eddie Jordan ride with us is simply icing on the cake for what will be another amazing event.”
“Looking forward to joining Axxess Marine for their 3rd Annual Charity Ride, this year supporting one of my favourite charities, The Amber Foundation,” said Eddie Jordan, Formula One icon and a passionate supporter of the charity. “The Monaco Yacht Show is perfect timing for this ride as it will gain huge exposure for Amber. Amber gives young, homeless adults a second chance, giving them a place to live, support and encouragement in a structured environment to help get them back on their feet. Having supported the charity with my Amber Rocks events in London over the past years I have seen many youngsters go through the Amber program with amazing success. Be sure to give us all a cheer and donate what you can.”
“We are so delighted that through Axxess Marine and ACREW, the super yacht industry is really getting behind Amber’s work supporting young homeless people,” said Stephen Ballantyne, Head of Fundraising and Communications for the Amber Foundation. “The support will help young people build their confidence and develop the skills that they need to find employment and a safe home of their own.”
The Axxess Marine Charity Ride event brings together participants from the superyacht and marine industry: Captains, Owners, Crew, and Service Providers, who tackle a beautiful 53-kilometre route along the Cote D’Azur and return to STARS’N’BARS to celebrate.
Registration is €100, and that includes the ride, coaches and support crew, limited edition race jersey, breakfast, post-ride lunch and party, and a single day pass to the Monaco Yacht Show (valued at 300€).
A road bike from SPOC Velo will also be given away at the ride’s after party to one of the lucky registered participants.
Can’t ride but want to donate?
There are two options:
1) Donate €100 and receive a Monaco Yacht Show Day pass through the Charity Ride event page.

The official cheque will be presented to The Amber Foundation at the 2019 Crew Awards Ceremony, 12th October, Le Palais de la Méditerranée, Nice. More about the 2019 Crew Awards by ACREW Yachting can be found here.
“When Eddie Jordan first told me about the Amber Foundation, I was immediately struck by how important a cause it was,” said Abigail McGrath, Director and Owner of ACREW. “Amber helps young people get back on track and works with them to build a fulfilling future. They have a residential programme including community engagement, counseling, career advice and other support systems required for as long as the individual needs it. ACREW is delighted to work with Axxess Marine to fundraise for this worthy cause.”
