Andrew Wilkinson'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.

Andrew Wilkinson 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 Andrew

Panda Nova rounds the Rock

"I'm looking forward to all the thrills and spills of my first Fastnet race. I expect it to be a long and tough journey home to the finish line but not nearly as hard as the impact cancer has on those that it touches and their families.

Having lost my own grandmother to cancer earlier this year I'm extremely proud to support Sail 4 Cancer and will be sailing the Fastnet in her memory. Please help support me by also donating to Sail 4 Cancer."
