Sail 4 Cancer are set to take a crew of people living with cancer to participate in a competitive sailing regatta to experience at first hand the thrills and exhilaration of competitive sailing. Participants will spend some time learning the ropes and getting to grips with their boat, before competing in several races. Whilst the experience is not as relaxing as our Solent Day Sails, and adrenaline will no doubt be pumping during the racing, participants will still be in the very safe hands of a professional crew.
(Suitable for those aged 18 years and above. No sailing experience necessary.)
There is no charge for participating in this activity, though due to the early start on the day you may prefer to have overnight accommodation the night before; the cost for this cannot be covered by Sail 4 Cancer. There may be the possibility of staying on the boat - Please ask if you are interested!
