Port Hamble - Southampton
After two hugely successful events in 2015 and 2016, Britannia Corporate Events are delighted to host the 2017 LIA Challenge Cup - inviting members of the Lighting Industry Association to socialise, network and race against each other aboard out beautiful First 40 yachts. The emphasis is on fun and you are invited to bring colleagues and clients to the event, for a great opportunity to network in an exciting and unique environment! No sailing experience is required as Britannia will provide high-quality yachts with two professional crew onboard.
Choosing a sailing event is a fantastic leveller, highly exhilarating and, above all, great fun. The professional skippers will give you a full safety brief and take you through the basics before you go out to sea, and continue training so no sailing experience is necessary. Sailing is a great way to improve team cohesion and efficiency. It helps build foundations that can drive your bottom line, and provides the people that matter most to your business an unforgettable experience.
Teams are made up of 4-8 people and can comprise of colleagues, customers and guests.
The day starts with a breakfast briefing and then it's down to the boats for familiarisation and then out onto the water for a practice before friendly racing begins early afternoon.
Once racing has finished around 4.30 it's back into shore where there will be a BBQ and prize giving as well as an opportunity to socialise with others within the industry.
