Sunsail are delighted to be a Silver Sponsor and Official Charter Partner of the Little Britain Challenge Cup, for the next 5 years. Enter the Little Britain Challenge Cup this year on a Sunsail Match First 40 and be part of the only perfectly matched fleet in the regatta, sailing in their very own Sunsail class. You'll 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. 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.

This is the year that Little Britain Challenge Cup celebrates its 30th anniversary and all guests will be invited to the 'big bash' crew party celebrations.

The Little Britain Challenge Cup, first conceived in 1988, is Europe’s biggest industry regatta, 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 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 training day to hone your skills ready for racing. On both the three and four-day options, you can take the boat bareboat, or we can arrange a professional crew of Skipper and First Mate for you. You can tailor your package to suit your needs, including on board catering, full corporate branding packages with flags, hull stickers and more, and fully branded crew kit.
