A team from lighting controls specialist Simmtronic and clients was one of the 250 entries in the construction industry’s charity yachting event, the Little Britain Challenge Cup regatta.
After a series of races the 10 man crew, comprising Simmtronic staff and different clients each day, had sailed their 40 ft yacht into 4th place in IRC Class 6.
A charter skipper supervised safety and was available for local and tactical advice, but the yacht was helmed by Simmtronic’s Richard McCarthy, Steve Petts and Adam Savage in turn, with Kevin Stubbs as navigator and Mario Costanzo assuming the role of crew chief.
The Little Britain regatta brings many of the leading players in the construction industry together for a highly competitive and sociable event. Over many years it has raised considerable sums for sailing charities to help disadvantaged or disabled people experience the world of sailing.
