A huge congratulations to the 'Sail4Macmillan' team for winning the Sailing Today Cruise of the Year award, presented at the Southampton Boat Show.
The 8-week adventure, proudly sponsored by Yacht Havens, saw two boats depart Fambridge Yacht Haven and sail anti-clockwise around Great Britain raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Sailing Today Editor Sam Fortescue described why event planner Colin Stracey was such a worthy winner saying:
“The plan was to take one boat from Fambridge Yacht Haven Ltd round Great Britain in eight legs, heading anticlockwise. In the event, Colin managed to fill not one but two boats for those eight legs, meaning this is really an award for 42 people. He was inspired to raise the money – nearly £6,000 – for Macmillan Cancer Support, which helped his family to cope with his son James’s cancer.”
