Kvaerner Construction used this week's Little Britain Challenge Cup regatta to remind the industry that it was now under new ownership - although the hastily applied stickers claimed the deal was done simply because Skanska was 'easier to spell'. Last weekend's event at Cowes on the Isle of Wight was the biggest ever with 204 yachts battling in light winds. Price & Myers in 'Mithril' were overall winners after two days of racing. Its second team in 'Musketeer' completed a one-two in the structural engineering class. Gibb's boat Vosolda picked up third. Top contractor was LT Deeprose in 'Extra Djinn' - which also came second overall - followed by Laing in 'Polyhagus'. The event raised money for the Jubilee Sailing Trust.
