This year’s epic Cogs4Cancer cycle ride, organised by Ben Young from Sunseeker Superyacht Management in aid of Cancer Research UK, takes place in early October and the team have already raised a whopping €96,000!

With support flooding in from superstars (Rihanna leant her support this week!), owners, industry leaders, businesses and 2 Royal families, this year’s events look set to smash the team’s previous success in 2013.
