The Little Britain Challenge Cup (LBCC) is the largest industry sailing regatta in Europe and is open to any company from the construction industry including architects, engineers, construction consultants, specialist contractors and manufacturers. Each year the LBCC raises significant sums for charity and always proves to be one of the most enjoyable and competitive regattas in the sailing calendar.
Sailing Logic offers a fleet of fully race-prepared Beneteau First 40 yachts available for charter. Each yacht is provided with a full wardrobe of race sails and can race competitively under IRC.
Little Britain racing is now focused over two days; Friday and Saturday with an optional practice race day on Thursday. Most of Sailing Logic’s clients chose to take Thursday as a training day, which we highly recommend.
Saturday night is the spectacular gala dinner, and the event finishes on Sunday morning with a champagne breakfast before you head home!
For those looking to maximise value from attending the sailing event, choose to join the Thursday training day and take part in the practice sailing races Sailing Logic arrange (Little Britain no longer arrange any ‘formal’ practice races, but we will arrange some within the Sailing Logic fleet for those who decide to arrive on Thursday.) This is a great way to enable more people to take part, improve your team sailing skills to give you a competitive advantage in the racing, and maximise your brand exposure.
