“It was wonderful to welcome so many people from the construction industry to the 2019 CRASH Sailing Cup Challenge. The event was great fun and a brilliant demonstration of the industry coming together to raise vital donations for their charity. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who took part and delighted that some companies have already booked their yachts for next year’s event in readiness to challenge Taylor Wimpey for the championship trophy”.
