Sail 4 Cancer - The Sailing Charity

Sail 4 Cancer was set up in 2001 by a group of keen sailors who had all lost a close friend or relative to cancer.

Sail 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of water based respite days and holidays for families affected by cancer. The charity also makes grants to cancer care centres and supports research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. sailing) and how it can help prevent cancer and aid recovery post diagnosis.

From the moment you are diagnosed with cancer your life is taken over by hospital visits, treatments, tests, uncertainty, and often, financial worries. For a day or a week, Sail 4 Cancer takes cancer patients and their families away from the disease and the nightmare that they are living through and offers them the chance to rebuild relationships, create positive memories and have some quality fun time together.
