Windermere Day Sails

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 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.

Sail 4 Cancer is delighted to announce another batch of sailing day dates on Lake Windermere for cancer patients and their families.

These sailing days are onboard Sail 4 Cancer's yacht 'Dash' which is looked after and managed by the WIndermere Outdoor Sailing Centre.

We have 24 separate days available for families affected by cancer - this gift is suitable for groups of up to four people.

All dates are available from 1 April through to 15 September inclusive.
