Now’s your chance to escape the pressures of City life and race on the water against like minded companies. Pit yourself against the elements, work as the perfect team and most importantly beat your business competitors. No sailing experience is necessary! 

Companies from across the City of London and Canary Wharf will compete on the water in state of the art boats – Laser SB3s.

Teams can enter in four different regattas held across four weekends:

 · INSURANCE AND ASSET MANAGEMENT – Training 9 April. Racing 10-11 April
·  LEGAL – Training 30 April. Racing 1-2 May
·  BANKING – Training 25 June. Racing 26-27 June
·  IT – Training 9 July.  Racing 10-11 July
·  FINALS – Gala Dinner 25 September.  Racing 25-26 September

All teams entering the challenge will compete in their industry weekend, and will automatically qualify to race in either a silver or gold final held in Cowes on 25th-26th September. 

Racing across both weekends is covered in the entry fee. A full social programme, Laser SB3 Charter, race training day, branding package and gala dinner is also included in the price.

The sailing will be held in the Solent, and is organised by Cowes based Pelican Racing and hosted by the Island Sailing Club.

We are delighted to announce the Cayman Islands as the title sponsor to the City Racing Challenge.

The Cayman Islands are made up of three very different paradise islands surrounded by glittering turquoise sea and white sandy beaches. Grand Cayman offers five star hotels, sophisticated gourmet dining and an abundance of activities where as Cayman Brac is a nature lover’s paradise with striking landscape and world class diving. For solitude and barefoot luxury, visit the tiny island of Little Cayman. These Caribbean islands are united by the friendly welcoming locals, fantastic service and a truly outstanding natural environment.
