Sail 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of sailing enthusiasts in 2001, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Sail 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of water based days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of sport (e.g. sailing) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Simon and Jo are taking on the Rolex Fastnet 2017 whilst raising funds for Sail 4 Cancer. They explain why: “This summer we are taking part in the Fastnet Race campaign which is made up of various qualifying races and training days followed by the main Fastnet race in August. Fastnet is a gruelling 600 nautical mile race that starts in Cowes on the Isle of Wight, then the boats race out to and around the Fastnet Rock which is situated on the southern corner of Ireland before returning to Plymouth.

Whilst doing all of this we would like to help raise money for a charity called Sail 4 Cancer who provide water based days out and short breaks to British families affected by cancer. Why did we choose this charity? Because we have both lost loved ones to this terrible disease and know that many others are going through the same terrible loss. If we can help those families have some quality time out on the water together whilst someone they love is suffering then our 600 mile race will be worth it. Please help us raise as much as we can for this very worthwhile cause by donating whatever you feel is right.”

Thank you
