America's Cup 2013: 'Bart Simpson was on my mind every day we sailed. He would have been so proud at the finish'
I will take away so many special memories from the last fortnight. Almost my favourite memory of the final day, though, came in the small hours of Wednesday night, long after the last champagne cork had popped and I had given my last interview.

Fine Art students at the Academy of Art University in San Fransisco have painted this mural to celebrate the America's Cup. They have dedicated it to the memory of Bart, and we would like to thank them all for their hard work and generosity of talent. The continued support of the worldwide community is humbling - in a car trip today one of my sons asked me 'was Andy a V.I.P?' Before I had thought about the question, I realised that I had already answered: 'Ollie,' I replied, 'if you had ever asked Andy that question, he would have immediately replied "No - but you are." And he would have meant it from the bottom of his heart.' Thank you, students from the Academy of Art University, for your wonderful efforts. Like all those supporting this page, Andy would want you to know that you are Very Important People and he would value you immensely.
