Stephan Sanner revisits a great challenge!

Sail 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of sailing enthusiasts 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 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.

Stephan is taking on the Rolex Fastnet 2017 whilst raising funds for Sail 4 Cancer . Here he explains why:

“I decided to do my second Fastnet this year to challenge myself and because I really enjoyed the 2013 edition! Fastnet is a 608 miles race starting in Cowes, heading to the Fastnet Lighthouse, South Ireland and back to Plymouth. We should be able to do it in 4 days or less depending on the wind conditions. This is one of the oldest (1928) classic yacht races in the world. I will be racing on Jameerah, a J-120 in IRC2 with a crew of eight and we qualified a few weeks ago by finishing the North Sea Race & East Coast Race.

"I want to raise money for Sail 4 Cancer because I know how difficult cancer can be on the person and the family; the work done by this charity is just amazing. Beating cancer is a lot harder than finishing Fastnet in my view which is why the least I can do is to raise some money for this charity.

"So give generously if you can!”

Thank you
