Sail 4 Cancer With The UK Wayfarer Association

16 July 2008

The 50th Anniversary of this famous dinghy is being celebrated at Parkstone Yacht club from August 19th to 30th. Wayfarer owners from across Europe are expected to take part in cruising events exploring Poole Harbour and nearby areas. The National Championships follow the cruising activities and take place as part of Poole Week. Sponsors of the events are Navigators and General, and Hartley Laminates, the new builder of the latest version of the Wayfarer.

Linking the 2 major events will be a Gala Dinner at Parkstone Yacht club on Saturday 23rd August, when Roger Proctor, son of Ian Proctor the designer, will reminisce about the great contribution the Wayfarer has made to the popularity of dinghy sailing in the UK and around the world. A feature of the Gala Dinner will be a Charity auction in aid of Sail 4 Cancer for which generous contributions have been made by Sailing Holidays Ltd, Pinnell & Bax, Flexible Reefing, Selden, Kwik2Me covers, Seacraft Pottery, Y&Y and Dinghy magazines, Optimum Time and Stylish Stitches. Hopefully this will generate a lot of fun as well as additional funding for Sail 4 Cancer.

Wayfarer sailors and supporters are welcome to participate in any of the activities. For more details www.wayfarer.org.uk
