Sail 4 Cancer Sailing Adventures!

Sailing Adventure
Sailing Adventure

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.

Sailing Adventure

(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!

“This was a special day in my life. I can never thank you enough...if I am ever feeling down, I just think back to the day, and a big smile comes across my face.....” Dave

"The happiest day I have had for a long time. Get on-board; leave your stress and worries on the quayside. You will feel enlivened and take away some life long memories." Tim

"A wonderful day on the water, out in the fresh air, it completely made me feel alive again after a winter of hospital appointments and cancer treatments." Jennifer

“I’m so grateful to Sail 4 Cancer for the Sailing Adventure Day - it was an amazing experience in the company of such wonderful people. It left me feeling revived and motivated to pick myself up and move forward in a much more positive frame of mind.” Jenny
