Ben Young, MD of Sunseeker Superyacht Management and President of ‘Cogs4Cancer’ explains the founding of the charity, “Cogs 4 Cancer was founded by a group of like minded people, all with links to the yachting industry after one of our close friends developed a brain tumor. The vision was to develop a charity that the whole of the yachting industry could get behind and support.”
