Event Information

The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust takes young people sailing, helping them to get back what cancer can take away. A large part of the Trust’s activities is setting challenges for these youngsters, mainly on offshore cruises. They now wish to take these challenges inland and would like to hold an event at Carsington Water.

The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust Charity Day will be held on Saturday September 7th. It will be a Carsington Water wide day of activities.

  1. *  CSL will be organising a Sponsored Cycle Ride and Raft race.
  2. *  There will be activities over the Severn Trent site
  3. *  CSC will be running events for ‘Special Trophies’.
     

The proposed day  at Carsington Sailing Club will consist of the following:

  • A series of races for Cruisers competing form the C.S.C. Charity Regatta Trophy.
  • A series of races for 3 Club Squibs helmed by CSC Instructors and crewed by youngsters from the hospitals, competing for a Trophy from Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust for ‘Top’ hospital.
  • An Open Meeting for the Youth competing for Trophies from the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust.

We shall also be offering taster sessions to some of these youngsters, both able bodied and disabled, who have not had the chance to experience sailing before.

We hope that this will also be a successful Social event.
