Sunsail is partnering with Little Britain Challenge Cup for the 33rd Construction and Property Industry Regatta to raise money for sailing charities. IRC boats invited. Two race classes organised. IRC and the new Sunsail 41.os one design fleet.
During this very challenging year, we have been engaging with our loyal sailing supporters to come up with a format that is simpler and safer whilst continuing to support our charities and the UK sailing industry.
We have been mindful of severely reduced marketing budgets and have produced an event that brings our industry together at a reduced cost with a single day, 3 race format based out of Port Solent, Portsmouth.

There will be two classes for the Sail for Charities regatta: a one-design Sunsail 41.0 class and an IRC class.
Race in the new Sunsail 41.0 – In 2020, Sunsail, our regatta partner, commissioned 12 new Jeanneau racing yachts to its UK fleet which will be used for this event. The brand new Sunsail 41.0 is a cutting edge performance cruiser-racer that combines incredible sailing performance with a revolutionary deck and interior design that is unparalleled in the sailing market.
