Sail 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of sailing enthusiasts, 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 support research into the positive effects of sport (e.g. sailing) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Southport 24 Hour Race

The 24 Hour Race, organised by the West Lancashire Yacht Club, is the leading endurance dinghy race in Europe. Sailing teams from across the UK compete for serious trophies (and status) whilst also enjoying one of the best social events in the dinghy racing calendar.

The race is sailed in classic dinghies (Enterprise, GP14 and Lark) on the Marine Lake at Southport. The racing is continuous for 24 hours, even in extreme weather! More information on this unique race can be found here>

As an endurance sailing event, many teams choose to raise funds for charity. If you are a club taking part in the event and would like to raise funds for Sail 4 Cancer, we would be delighted!

We will provide you with hull stickers and set up a team fundraising page on www.sail4cancer.org so people can sponsor you online.
