Amey Love Shack and Languard Investments shared the honours in this year's Little Britain Challenge Cup regatta last weekend. It was the first time there has been a tie in the event's 18 year history.
There were a record 238 entrants to the construction industry sailing race, which is held off Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
A gorgeous day for the practice race on Thursday was followed by a flat calm Friday, forcing racing to be abandoned.
Cloud cover broke as the wind eventually picked up to a light 3-5 knots at noon on Saturday, allowing a shortened race finally to get under way.
The sailing and evening events, including a Moulin Rouge night complete with can-can dancers and a Gala dinner for 1,600 people - the largest ever seen on the Isle of Wight - raised over £150,000 for charity.
Main eneficiaries will be the Ellen MacArthur Trust, the Cirdan and Jubilee Sailing Trusts, as well as the Andrew Cassell foundation and John Merricks Sailing Trust. Thanks to everyone who hosted NCE over the three days, namely Capita Symonds, Dean & Dyball, Hill McGlynn, Hotchkiss, Wilson James and WSP.
