Clipper City Challenge 2017

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 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 tenth annual Clipper City Challenge will take place on the 10th - 11th of June 2017. Sail 4 Cancer is delighted to be one of the charities benefitting from this event.

This long running regatta brings together people from across the city for a weekend of fun, yet competitive, sailing with ample opportunity to socialise and make new business connections.

Each team of 12 charters a Clipper 70 yacht which will be getting ready for their third circumnavigation in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

These large ocean racing yachts prove excellent platforms for novices but even regular sailors will have to adapt new techniques to get the most out of these big boats. On board with your team will be our friendly professional crew who will teach and guide you throughout the weekend.

“The calibre of staff both on and off the water is very high. The skipper and mates are always enthusiastic and professional, demonstrating a level of professionalism that is hard to match elsewhere in the sailing industry. With the impressive size of boats Clipper Events offers, it is easy to spot the other teams on the water."
Vice President - Corporate Investment Bank, JP Morgan
