Would-be Paralympian gets Moore Stephens support

Accountancy firm Moore Stephens Isle of Man is to be lead sponsor for yachtsman Jody Hill, who’s aiming to represent the United States of America in the London 2012 Paralympics.

The announcement was made by Moore Stephens partner Clive Dixon, who has confirmed the sponsorship will include logistics, an improved boat, sails and professional coaching, as well as a website and social media support.

Captain Jody Hill was left paralysed from the chest down after a car accident on the Caribbean island of Tortola where he skippered the sailing yacht FLICKA in 2006.
