Justen Bersin's Fastnet 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 fund research into the positive effects of sport (e.g. sailing) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Justen Bersin is part of a crew of nine sailors participating in one of the most gruelling offshore sailing races in the world - the Rolex Fastnet.

Panda Nova II will be one of 300 yachts sailing in this year's race which starts on Sunday the 11th of August.

The 608 mile course starts at Cowes on the Isle of Wight and heads towards the Fastnet Rock off Southwest Ireland. The fleet then head back to the finish line in Plymouth.

Message from Justen

"When I joined Panda at the start of 2011, I joked that I would do the Fastnet in 2013, not really appreciating the seriousness of the race.

Since then I have trained with the Panda crew, gained sailing qualifications, completed thousands of sea miles, changed my fitness regime specifically to complement sailing and since the start of 2013 spent nearly every weekend racing, learning skills or fixing Panda. I have taken this challenge very seriously and dedicated myself to the race's completion.

Panda Nova rounds the Rock

I am doing this challenge because it is my passion, to support my crew and to test myself. This will be my first time racing in the Fastnet and, in doing so, I am hoping to raise funds for Sail 4 Cancer. The reason is simple, it's the right thing to do (and for those who know me well this is a lot better then me doing Movember again!)

Thank you for your support."
