Little Britain Challenge Cup: Spring One-Day Regatta

15th May 2020

As a silver sponsor and official charter partner of the Little Britain Challenge Cup, this year Sunsail is delighted to announce the launch of the first-ever LBCC May 1-Day Regatta on 15th May 2020.

If you are considering entering the Little Britain Challenge Cup this year and want to get a feel for what to expect, this 1-day race offers the perfect opportunity to get your sailing skills ready for the main regatta taking place between the 10-13th Sept 2020.  

This is a great chance to get the whole team together for an exciting day of competitive racing against industry peers in a unique construction industry networking event that’s not to be missed.

 

About the Little Britain Challenge Cup

The Little Britain Challenge Cup, founded 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.
