Last chance to Sail 4 Cancer with Blue Box this summer!

Sail 4 Cancer with Blue Box

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 pleased to announce that it will be providing more sailing days for cancer sufferers in partnership with its long time supporter Blue Box Experiences. People will be able to enjoy a day of sailing on the Solent onboard one of Blue Box's Clipper 60 'Round The World' racing yachts.

Experience the thrill of sailing in a safe, relaxed environment, whilst really getting involved in being a crew member on the yacht. You will have the opportunity to take the wheel of the Clipper 60 as she powers through the Solent! Feel the buzz of working on the front of the boat for sail changes and hoists!

Solent Sailing Experience - Sail 4 Cancer

Meet just before 10am for a cup of tea or coffee and then head down to the yacht. After a short safety briefing, we will motor out of the River Hamble to the famous waters of the Solent.

This 30 mile stretch of water between England and the Isle of Wight, flanked at one end by the Needles and at the other by Napoleonic forts, provides some of the most popular cruising waters in the World.

The Solent also plays host to Cowes Week, the biggest UK yachting regatta, as well as providing the start line for many Round the World Races. Whatever the time of year, there is always something to see in this busy stretch of water.
