Who we support

Sail 4 Cancer


A cancer diagnosis has a devastating effect on the whole family and creates uncertainty, stress, constant worry and financial concerns. Sail 4 Cancer gives families in this situation the chance to get away from the constant stress for a while to create positive memories and spend quality time together.

The charity provides respite breaks include sailing days, park and resort breaks, riverboat adventures, ocean cruises and day outings. Sail 4 Cancer also provides special breaks for young cancer carers and sailing weekends for youngsters recovering from cancer to help them regain their confidence. To help the many families on their waiting list Sail 4 Cancer has to raise more funds each year and has to find new and innovative ways of doing so.

One of the ways they raise funds is through their Donate Your Boat scheme. The pressures of modern life often mean that boats are often underutilised and neglected for months and as maintenance costs escalate and owners find boat ownership has become a financial burden. Owners can now donate their boats to the charity who will either use them for sailing or sell them to raise funds.

Wetwheels Solent made her debut in 2011, and now The Wetwheels Foundation has boats across the UK. We have welcomed many hundreds of disabled people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy wonderful times onboard, in a fun, safe, and stimulating environment - building confidence and challenging self-perceptions, with the boat fully accessible to all. We offer a range of experiences which offer something truly unique, with a perspective that is only possible from the water.

Geoff Holt MBE DL is the Founder of Wetwheels, and a true inspiration. Paralysed from the neck down in an accident at the age of 18, he has maintained the belief that anything can be achieved given a positive approach. In 2007 he became the first disabled person to sail single-handed around Great Britain and two years later he sailed across the Atlantic Ocean unassisted. "There is something special about being on the water, and how it brings people together and opens up so many new ideas and possibilities. It’s OK to dream about new adventures. Had I not had those dreams, I would not have achieved what I have".

Sail Aid uk


On 8th September 2017, a group of five marine industry stalwarts, all of whom have strong links with the Caribbean, were so moved by the devastating news coming out of the Islands in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, that they immediately united to set up 'Sail Aid UK', a major fundraising initiative to support its victims . Peta Stuart-Hunt, Liz Lotz, Katie Walker, Philippe Falle and Simon Boulding are the Founders and Trustees of Sail Aid UK, co-ordinating the PR, marketing, logistics, legal and administrative, international contribution, general support and volunteer requirements.

Many people set themselves challenges to raise money. Many people decide they want to cross the Atlantic for one reason or another. This is the story of two very special young men, Jude and Greg, who, as the team “Ocean Brothers”, will set off in January 2018 to row across the Atlantic to raise money for the British Skin Foundation.
