The London 10K
The Construction Industry Sailing Cup
Friday 5th July 2024 will see the return of The Construction Industry Regatta in aid of CRASH (formerly the CRASH Sailing Cup). With a new name and new yachts, the exclusive event will be hosted on board Sunsail’s fleet of luxury Sunsail 41.0 yachts, and will raise money for CRASH – the construction industry’s charity.
The day will allow a perfect opportunity to network with other professionals in the industry and enjoy some friendly competition on the water with a series of matched fleet races. The regatta is a fantastic team building event and a wonderful opportunity to entertain clients.
There are 5 teams already signed up, so the competition is heating up for a great day.
For every yacht that enters, a charitable donation to CRASH is included in the package, meaning the regatta will not only be fun for the industry, but will support our work with homelessness charities and hospices.
The regatta takes starts and finishes in Port Solent Marina, Portsmouth (PO6 4TJ), and is within easy reach of train stations, Southampton Airport and the M27, with ample free parking at the marina.
