Equinox Sailing take on the Rolex Fastnet 2017

Sail 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of keen sailors in 2001, 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 respite breaks for British families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and fund research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. sailing) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

On Sunday the 6th of August, a select crew of sailors from Equinox Sailing will set off from Cowes for the Rolex Fastnet 2017. Frequently referred to as the 'Everest' of competitive sailing, the Rolex Fastnet race is one of the most demanding offshore yachting races in the world.

Equinox Sailing are an RYA Training centre offering RYA Courses, Mile Builders and individuals the chance to race in iconic races like the Rolex Fastnet.

Simon Wilson, Equinox Sailing Chief Instructor says “Taking an inexperienced crew on such a long and difficult race poses some unique challenges; we have a comprehensive training program that includes 4 qualifying races and 3 training weekends. Hopefully we will experience a wide range of conditions before the Fastnet race to prepare the crew for the challenge. It’s an amazing feeling and achievment to finish in Plymouth and to do our bit for Sail 4 Cancer”
