The ISS (International Superyacht Society) annual UK-based Regatta on the Solent will benefit the 'Sail 4 Cancer' charity.

This year’s event will be held from June 7-9. 2013. Last year’s winner, BMT Nigel Gee will return to defend their title. With eight boats already confirmed, 12 to 15 are expected. Racers convene in Hamble on the evening of June 7th, spend the night on June 8th in Cowes and conclude racing on June 9th. Participating companies will rent one-design boats from Fairview and crew them with staff, vendors and clients.

The organizers say that the ISS Regatta has quickly grown into a great event for just-plain fun, networking and socializing. To further enhance participation, the Regatta also promotes a philanthropic directive: for 2013, Sail 4 Cancer has been named the Event Charity.
 
“We are delighted to be the official charity of the ISS Regatta. The superyacht industry has been very supportive of us as these companies understand how sailing can help people going through a very difficult time. All the money raised from the event will be used to arrange sailing days for the families we help. Cancer is a very cruel disease and has a devastating effect on everybody in the family. When the families are out on the Solent in a beautiful boat they enjoy just being a family doing something adventurous together and can leave the stress of cancer on land for a while” says Lizette van Niekerk, Fundraising Manager for Sail 4 Cancer.
