Sail 4 Cancer supporters around the UK will be spending 24 hours in a liferaft over two weekends in November 2012 to raise awareness of the 1,000 people who are diagnosed with the disease every 24 hours.

Title Sponsor: Ocean Safety

Ocean Safety will be supplying all the equipment for the challenge:

  • 8 man liferafts
  • Paddles
  • Llife jackets
  • Immersion suits

Our thanks to everyone at Ocean Safety for their support!

Sail 4 Cancer was the first charity in the UK to stage such an event in 2003. Since then the event has been slowly gathering momentum. For 2012, the first challenge will take place in four locations on the following dates:

Commenting on the challenge, Sail 4 Cancer's Chairman, Graham Precey, said "In the same way that Liferafts provide a lifeline when something goes badly wrong at sea, Sail 4 Cancer's days out and short-breaks for families affected by cancer provide a lifeline in often very difficult circumstances. They provide hope and give families something good to look forward to during arduous treatment schedules."
