Little Britain Challenge Cup: Spring One-Day Regatta

As a silver sponsor and official charter partner of the Little Britain Challenge Cup, this year Sunsail is delighted to announce that we will be hosting the LBCC for the second year running on the 14th May, 2021.

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 that takes place later on in the year.

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 one of Europe’s biggest industry regattas and is open to any company in the construction industry.

The event is one of the most enjoyable events on the sailing calendar and 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.


We have developed two specific types of charter packages that offer excellent value for money: The bareboat package and the skippered package. Both packages include breakfast, lunch and soft drinks. Optional meal tickets and additional overnight stay on the yachts the night before the event are also included in the price. All packages include our new Sunsail 41.0 for the charter. This cutting edge Performance Cruiser/Racer combines incredible sailing performance with a revolutionary deck and interior design that is unparalleled in the sailing market, and is already a winner of multiple awards and positive test sail reviews.
