Sunsail are delighted to be a Silver Sponsor and Official Charter Partner of the Little Britain Challenge Cup, for the second year running as part of a three year agreement. Enter the Little Britain Challenge Cup this year with a Sunsail Match First 40 and be part of the only perfectly matched fleet in the regatta, sailing in their very own Sunsail class but also allowing the opportunity to gain overall honours. This allows everyone to enjoy competitive racing at its very best with the skills of your team being the only factor that will separate your boat from the field. With prices from just £1,692.50 plus VAT for a three-day charter, the Sunsail Match First 40 fleet also offers fantastic value for money.

First conceived in 1988, the Little Britain Challenge Cup is Europe’s biggest industry regatta, open to any company in the construction industry and any level of sailing enthusiast. 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 Little Britain, Sunsail can offer a complete package with everything you need. The Little Britain Challenge Cup is recognised as a great socialising and networking event for those in the construction industry, as an important team building event and for the great charity fundraising that takes place. Year after year, the LBCC continues to raise money for sailing charities such as the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust and the Cirdan Sailing Trust.

We have developed two specific types of charter packages to get you racing that offer excellent value for money - the three day racing package or the four day package which includes an extra day to hone your skills ready for racing. On both the 3 and 4 day options, you can take the boat bareboat or we can arrange a professional crew of Skipper and First Mate for you. There is a variety of options for you to tailor your package to your needs, including catering on board, full corporate branding packages for the yachts including flags, hull stickers and more and also fully branded clothing for your crew.
