Sail 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of sailing enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Sail 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of 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.

Leaving Tower Bridge (London) on Saturday the 23rd of August , a group of sailors and a group of walkers/runners will set off for Brighton in this unusual charity race.

BOOT vs BOAT is perhaps the ultimate London to Brighton race! Who will get to Brighton Marina first? The honour of the sailing and ultra-running / distance walking communities are at stake!

In last year's inaugural event, the sailors struck lucky with favourable winds on the day, reaching Brighton just 19 hours later. BUT that could all change this year...


Sunsail F40

The Sail 4 Cancer team will cover between 120 and 180 miles by sea in a Sunsail F40 rocket ship! A development of the Beneteau First 40, the F40 is the ultimate performance racer having won 'Crossover Boat of the Year' as well as taking both first and second in the IRC division of the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race.


Departing from Tower Bridge, the walkers/runners will travel approximately 60 miles overland - with a few checkpoints and diversions thrown in to make things interesting! There will also be a compulsory rest stop at the mid-way point to help Run 4 Cancer team members to manage the fatigue.
