Entries Still Available for the Little Britain Challenge Cup!

The Little Britain Challenge Cup (LBCC) 2016 sailing regatta is all set to begin on 9 September, and last minute entries are still available online.

Build UK is partnering with the Little Britain Challenge Cup (LBCC) again this year to bring together contractors, clients and professionals from across the construction industry in an annual sailing event. LBCC 2016, which takes place in Cowes on the Isle of Wight from 9 - 10 September, and also has an optional stand-alone Warm-Up Race on Thursday 8 September, is one of the best sporting events in the industry’s calendar and offers a fantastic opportunity to network and socialise.

Over 50 yachts, including a number of Build UK members, are expected to compete this year. With a range of charter packages available, LBCC is a great event for both experienced sailing teams and new entrants and represents a great opportunity not only to increase visibility and contacts within the industry, but also to raise significant sums of money for the charities that the regatta supports.

Build UK Chief Executive Suzannah Nichol MBE, who participated in LBCC 2015, said:

“I was delighted to be part of the Lakesmere team that won its class at LBCC 2015 and look forward to some healthy competition and socialising, both on and off the water, at the industry’s best networking event in September 2016.“

Entries can be made online right up until the event, and further information can be found by visiting the LBCC website.
