May 6th sees Windsurfing For Cancer Research’s ‘Sunrise to Sunset’ return for another year.

Gwent Adventures at Llandegfedd Reservoir will be running a fun-filled day to mark the event and raising funds for some fantastic charities while they are it. Mike Walklin, chief instructor at Gwent Adventures, has set himself  a personal challenge to teach a group of complete beginners to windsurf in two hours. They will start at 10am and the aim is to make them part of the event by 12 midday!

The Polkerris Pirates T15 team get involved at W4CR 2011

There will be always be somebody windsurfing between the hours of 8am and 8pm. Accompanied by a BBQ, refreshments, there will also be a raft race, SUPs & Dinghy trips and free windsurfing technique and tuning sessions to kick start your season.

Gwent adventures will be holding a raffle with excellent prizes from C-Skins Wetsuits, Gwent Adventures and Rat Rigs Surf – make sure you don’t miss out! W4CR has raised over £130,000 since it started 3 years ago, hopefully the sterling efforts this year will raise even more for the fantastic charities. You can find out more at www.w4cr.org

Matt Walklin at last year's event

The event this year has special significance for all of us involved with Llandegfedd, we are raising as much money as possible for charities. Firstly, for Velindre Cancer Care, and also for the Karen Morris Memorial Trust. This trust provides accommodation for families of cancer patients undergoing treatment in London, and this was where Matthew Walklin’s family stayed.  Matthew is sadly no longer with us and we dedicate all our efforts in this to his fond memory.”
