15/04/08 The date for this year's SSA Wight Stuff Cruise has been set! The event is scheduled take place on Saturday, 12th July 2008.  The SSA Wight Stuff Cruise is a charity event where a large group of jet-skiers circumnavigate 70 miles around the Isle of Wight launching from Lee-on-the-Solent and skiing clockwise around the island stopping at Sandown and Yarmouth before heading back to Lee.  This event has raised over £30,000 for charity in the last five years! 

This year the SSA Wight Stuff charity cruise is in aid of Make-A-Wish Foundation®

Make-A-Wish Foundation®  UK grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses.  Our wishes are truly magical. Whether a wish is to be a princess or a policeman for a day, own the latest computer equipment, meet a favourite celebrity or just enjoy some special time away from home with their family, a wish come true brings so much to a child’s life and provides memories that last a lifetime.
