Tom and Palpatine face the Fastnet

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.

Tom Marsh is to take the Palpatine crew to face the Fastnet… He explains:

“Hi folks, it's that time of year again... this year, I'm taking Palpatine and crew, on a challenging campaign of offshore races to once again face the famous Fastnet Race.

This year I'm very proud to be supporting Sail 4 Cancer and raising money to give those suffering with Cancer - and their families - some much needed support.

I'm lucky enough to be able to call my hobby my job, loving what sailing brings me. Sailing seems to take your mind off what is happing on land and allows you to forget the worries you are faced with in everyday life. By gaining sponsorship I'm hoping to give the rewards of sailing to those who really need it.

This year we are going to race competitively and are hoping to get a good result within the school Boat / pay per head niche of the competition. Let's see what the campaign holds, please follow us on our adventure.

Thanks folks!”
