Little Britain Challenge Cup

10-13th September 2020

Sunsail is delighted to be a silver sponsor and official charter partner of the Little Britain Challenge Cup.

Enter the Little Britain Challenge Cup this year on the new Sunsail 41.0 and be part of the only perfectly matched fleets in the regatta, sailing in their very own Sunsail Class.

You will also get the opportunity to claim overall honours. This allows everyone to enjoy competitive racing at its very best with the your team's racing skills being the only factor separating your boat from the field.

The Little Britain Challenge Cup, first conceived in 1988, is Europe’s biggest industry regatta and is open to any company in the construction industry. It continues to be one of the most enjoyable events on the sailing calendar, and has grown to be the second-largest regatta in England.

The event continues to grow in popularity, so whether you're returning to the regatta or new to the LBCC, Sunsail can offer a complete package with everything you need. The Little Britain Challenge Cup is recognised as a great socialising, networking and fundraising event for those in the construction industry.

Year after year, the LBCC continues to raise money for sailing charities such as the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, the Cirdan Sailing Trust and the 1851 Trust, all of whom share the money raised.

These specially modified yachts are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Charter packages 

We have developed two specific types of charter packages that offer excellent value for money: the three-day racing package or the four-day package, which includes an extra training day to hone your skills ready for racing.

On both options you can charter bareboat or we can arrange for a professional crew of skipper and first mate to join you.

We can tailor your package to suit your needs. If required, we can arrange onboard catering, full corporate branding packages with flags, hull stickers and more, and fully branded crew kit.
