Days out and short breaks for families affected by cancer

Welcome to the Sail 4 Cancer website. Sail 4 Cancer is a UK charity that raises funds to provide days out and short breaks for families affected by cancer. This is what we call “respite”.

Many of our respite trips and short breaks are water based. From family sailing days across the UK to longer holidays such as cruises, we give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times.

Spending time on the water has many health benefits and is proven to lower stress levels, a major factor in both cancer prevention and recovery.  We passionately believe in the therapeutic powers of the marine environment.
