Automotive Challenge Cup 2017

Date: 15/06/2017
Location: Port Solent, Portsmouth
Entry Fee: £2,495.00+ VAT (8 guests)

The Automotive Challenge Cup returns after a hugely successful ‘sell out’ event in 2016. This exciting corporate sailing event for the automotive industry combines a packed itinerary of networking, team building and yacht racing, whilst raising valuable funds for Ben.

For 2017 we have a maximum of 50 yachts available, and these always sell fast so don’t delay in reserving yours. You will be hosted on board Sunsail’s perfectly matched fleet of Beneteau Match First 40’s and a fleet of IRC Rated yachts. No sailing experience is necessary, however you need a reasonable level of fitness, so whether you are a manufacturer, supplier, insurer, part supplier, dealership, financier, electronics supplier, OEM or in any other sector of the automotive industry, you’re welcome to enter a team!

Sunsail Events provides a skipper and first mate on each yacht. They will help novices, coach more experienced sailors and ensure that all teams, regardless of sailing ability, will enjoy a fun and competitive event.

Each team participating can bring up to 8 guests to sail with and the 2 professional crew members make a total of 10 people who will compete for victory.

For every yacht entered, Sunsail will donate £650 to Ben, meaning the event will not only be a lot of fun, but it will also raise substantial funds for a fantastic cause.

Optional extras:

The evening before the event , we are holding a dinner party which gives crew members the opportunity to come together and enjoy a drink or two as well as a delicious gourmet buffet.  This provides the ideal opportunity to network and raise the stakes for the following days racing.
