Ian McPherson looks forward to a great challenge

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.

Ian is taking on the Rolex Fastnet 2017 whilst raising funds for Sail 4 Cancer . Here he explains why:

“The Rolex Fastnet Race is widely considered to be THE classic offshore race - the Everest of sailing. It is a race that is on every sailors' 'bucket list' and I am no different! I am looking forward to this challenge and making the most of the opportunity. I feel very fortunate to be able to participate in this event, and in doing so I would like to raise funds in conjunction with Sail 4 Cancer to support their efforts in providing respite activity with a sporting focus to cancer sufferers and their families throughout the UK. Any donation to this cause would be greatly appreciated.”

Thank you
