Little Britain Challenge Cup 9th – 10th September 2016
The Little Britain Challenge Cup is a sailing regatta for the construction industry. Since the first event in 1988 the Little Britain Challenge Cup has grown from 3 to 250 entries and to include more than 3000 competitors, making it the biggest regatta in the UK after Cowes Week.
LBCC continues to attract more and more new companies to join the regulars that have been taking part in the event since 1988. Centre around Cowes Yacht Haven, and Shepards Wharf Marina this is a fun packed event allowing crews of all abilities to join in two days of racing in the Solent. There is an action-packed social programme to complement the racing.
Over 22 years, Little Britain has donated well over £1m to sailing charities helping disadvantaged or disabled people experience the world of sailing. The 2009 regatta raised in excess of £100,000 and we’d like say a huge thank you to all our generous donors and sponsors. The money raised in 2009 was distributed among eight charities, including the Ellen MacArthur Trust, the Jubilee Sailing Trust, the Cirdan Sailing Trust and the Skandia team GBR Paralympic Sailing Team.
