Little Britain Challenge Cup (Corporate Charter)

£POA Booking

Course Image


Each September the construction industry meets for one of the UK's biggest corporate sailing regattas: The Little Britain Challenge Cup. Organised by and for the construction and property industry, this is the meeting place of some of the major players in the industry, including contractors, architects, surveyors and other high level industry professionals. What makes the Little Britain Regatta unique is that it is owned by a not for profit company and it raises thousands of pounds each year for various charities. The 2012 event alone raised £20K which was distributed between 9 charities.

Racing takes place in the Solent each September and Stormforce Coaching can provide you a race ready yacht with skipper, mate and all the extras you need for a successful corporate weekend. The regatta consists of 5 races which take place between the Thursday and Saturday of the event. In addition to this short series of races in the central Solent, the event includes a vibrant social scene, featuring cocktail parties, live music, a theme evening and Gala dinner, taking place at Cowes Yacht Haven. With competitive sailing during the day and social activities aplenty by night, the Little Britain regatta is the ideal opportunity for team bonding, industry networking and to enjoy some excellent yacht racing. 

This page is for whole boat charter, which means hiring a boat and skipper for a whole team for the weekend.

Course Duration:

The Little Britain Challenge Cup is a 4 day event and most teams opt to include a full training day immediately before the event to ensure they get a good racing result.

Why choose Stormforce Coaching for this course?:

We have a good pedigree when it comes to the Little Britain regatta. In 2012, our yacht entry came third in the race.

We also have excellent results in other corporate sailing regattas. In 2013, our team came first in the Manches Cup, which is the legal industry's equivalent regatta and we enter many other corporate sailing events each year.

Our charter package affords teams the opportunity to compete in a race-ready yacht with an experienced race skipper and mate. While our whole boat charter packages enable you to race solely with colleagues and friends, in your own team, you still benefit from having race training and the competitive edge that comes with having your own experienced race skipper.
