Sunshine and moderate winds guaranteed that last week's 2002 Little Britain Challenge Cup sailing regatta was one of the best events in its 15 year history. The event saw a record entry of 221 yachts with crews from every area of the construction industry gathering for the weekend in Cowes to compete over three races. Top honours were shared for the first time ever with a tie between architect Manser and building products supplier N Froy & Sons. Over 3,000 people attended the regatta, which for the first time also included a practice race on Thursday, extending the event across four days. Entry fees, sponsorship and charity auctions raised over £100,000 for the Jubilee Sailing Trust and the Cirdan Trust plus other local organisations including the Island Youth Centre Water Activities and the Cowes Sea Cadets. Top project management firm in the regatta was Symonds Group in Jeronimo (pictured), top structural engineer was WSP Group and top contractor was Structuretone.
