Thank you to our principal partner PIC, and a group of loyal event partners that help make this race possible:
OUR CHARITY PARTNER
MELANOMA NEW ZEALAND
New Zealand has the highest rate of melanoma in the world, and as yachties we are particularly susceptible - so we all need to be aware of how to prevent melanoma and how to detect it early. The statistics are terrible: more than 4000 people are diagnosed with melanoma in New Zealand every year and more than 350 New Zealanders die each year from it - that’s higher than our road toll.
But caught early, melanoma is almost always curable. So everyone, please get fundraising for this really important cause! The sooner you start your fundraising the page, the better as there will be a very special prize for the team who raise the most.
