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.

The Three Peaks Yacht Race is one of the oldest and most remarkable multi-sport endurance races in the world. It is a unique event combining sailing, running and cycling; with the quirky feature that rowing is allowed in moments of calm. It takes competitors through some of the most spectacular scenery in the United Kingdom. Not only are teams required to have excellent sailing and navigational abilities, but they also run Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis, the highest peaks in Wales, England and Scotland, in only a few days. Our longstanding Patron round-the-world yachtswoman Dee Caffari will skipper the Sail 4 Cancer boat in this year's event. Rob Barnes will be a member of her crew.

Rob says of the challenge:

Rob Barnes

ā€œI first heard about this remarkable race while talking to some friends at university, and thought that it sounded like an amazing challenge. I have been interested in competing ever since. Although I've always had an interest in a number of outdoor pursuits it is only in the past few years that running has become a larger part of my life. I entered my first marathon in 2014, off-road of course, and have been pushing myself to run faster and further ever since. When the opportunity arose to compete with such a fantastic team and for such a great cause I couldn't help but enquire. Knowing how sport, in my case running, helps me unwind from everyday life I can only imagine how valuable Sail 4 Cancer's work is to the people that they help.ā€
