Cancer sufferers sail from Isle of Wight with Dame Ellen MacArthur

A group of teenage cancer sufferers have taken a boat trip around the Isle of Wight with successful sailor Dame Ellen MacArthur.

Some 17 young people were split into four groups for the journey at the start of the month, reports the News Letter.

One of the teenagers on the trip was Hannah Hogg, from Magherafelt, who celebrated her 18th birthday on the Isle of Wight trip.

She said: "The best bit was definitely getting to know everyone and making new friends. The sailing was great too, even if it rained."

Hannah also told the news provider she would love to go back to the Isle of Wight for another experience.

Dame Ellen MacArthur added that the youngsters are "amazing", as well as "truly inspiring".

Hundreds of sailing aficionados will soon be heading on Isle of Wight holidays, as the famous Cowes Week regatta is set to get underway on August 6th.
