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. Traharn Chidley will be a member of her crew.

Traharn says of the challenge:

"Discovering Mountain biking saved me and changed my life... From the age of 17 I became trapped in a severely abusive relationship. After 5 years not knowing a way out, my brother guided me into the world of mountain biking. Being outside, gradually built me back up, gaining confidence and self-love, for the first time in years I felt free.

"After gaining the strength to escape the relationship, I put everything in to the outdoors, whether I’m running or biking I feel safe, strong, happy and free. That love has grown to competing at an elite level all over the world in Mountain Biking Gravity Enduros, fell runs and off road marathons.

"I take absolutely every opportunity that comes my way, living life to the max, seeing the world and making friends wherever I go. Competing alongside Dee Caffari and the team in the 3 Peaks Yacht Race will forever be a highlight in my career."
