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.

Barry and Louise are to be married on Saturday June 25th and have requested that, instead of buying gifts, their guests should donate their gift money to Sail 4 Cancer. Barry explains why:

“We lost a close family friend to cancer in April this year and have seen at first-hand how Sail 4 Cancer has helped the family and many others like them enjoy a short break as a family when times are at their toughest. To see the fabulous images of Dave and Maria with their family on a Sail 4 Cancer sailing experience has shown what a difference a small break can make. We both wanted to continue to support Sail 4 Cancer in whatever way we could so that other families can continue to benefit from such a great cause.

"Thank you for looking and we would appreciate donations to Sail 4 Cancer instead of any wedding gift. Please bear in mind this will save you many hours walking the shops trying to choose whether to get us a toaster or a teasmade :-)

"We look forward to seeing you in June to celebrate with us and if we can raise £1,500 I will bring out the Bjorn Borg outfit for a special 10th anniversary airing!!!”

Thank you
