The 13th St Wilfrid’s Hospice ‘Nab’ Challenge is to be held on Saturday, September 6, 2014 and the Inn-Shore Cruising Club, organisers of this popular and unique event, will be aiming to add to the magnificent amount of £162,000 already raised for this worthy charity.

As always, the organisers will be aiming to inspire and encourage as many competitors as possible to take part in this year’s challenge and raise as much money as possible for the Hospice. The race offers competitors a fantastic day’s racing, which is fun, safe and something the whole family can enjoy. The Challenge takes place over a 12 nautical mile course from a start line just outside Chichester harbour, around the Nab Tower and back and attracts entrants from sailing clubs throughout Sussex and beyond.

‘Every year the local sailing community get behind this wonderful event’, said ISCC spokesman, Patrick Doyle. ‘We are keen to maintain the momentum and have already started leafleting local yachting clubs to raise awareness and hopefully increase the number of entrants to record levels.’

‘There is a nominal entry fee of £20 per boat and entrants can get any number of people and organisations to sponsor them and their crew,’ said Patrick. ‘With on-line facilities for making contributions, we have made it as easy as possible to make donations.’

General donations of £5 per text can be made by texting SWCC50 to 70070.

St Wilfrid’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care – which means looking after the pain, distress and other symptoms of advanced cancer, Motor Neurone Disease and other life limiting illnesses – to local people. Since opening in 1987, it has cared for over 1200 local people and at any time provides care for 200 people, while offering support to their family and friends. The hospice is not part of the NHS and relies on public support to raise 88% of its annual running costs, which this year will be just under £6.7m.

Official sponsors are Chichester based, ATAG Heating UK Ltd, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of super high efficiency, low emission boilers, offering total heating solutions, including domestic, commercial and solar powered models to suit virtually every application.
