THE 11th St Wilfrid’s Hospice ‘Nab’ Challenge is taking place on Saturday, September 22.
Organisers hope the success of Team GB’s sailors in the Olympics will inspire and encourage more competitors to take part in this year’s challenge to raise funds for St Wilfrid’s Hospice.
Organised by the Inn-Shore Cruising Club and sponsored by Chichester-based ATAG Heating UK, the event has raised more than £128,000 for the hospice.
“We are keen to attract as many entrants as possible and have started leafleting local yachting clubs to raise awareness and drum up support,” said ISCC spokesman, Patrick Doyle.
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.
