The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) are organising a fun networking event out on the water. This is a great way to really get to know your clients and your colleagues away from the office.

 Regatta 1

When is it?
14 and 15 May. Arrive the evening of the 14th for a welcome BBQ meet up with your team and your Skipper and check out the boat you will be sailing the next day.

Can anyone take part?
The LIA Challenge cup is organised by and for the Lighting Industry, and you are welcome to bring colleagues and clients to this great networking event. You don’t have to have any previous experience of sailing, as a Skipper and crew member will be provided for each boat.  You will get the opportunity to take the helm and be part of the team sailing the boat under the instruction of your Skipper who will be on hand at all times.

Will we be racing against other teams?
Yes, but it’s fun racing nothing too serious.

How many people do I need to fill a team?
Ideally you need 8 people in a team (this includes your skipper and crew member provided). So you can bring a maximum of 6.

What if I don’t have a full team?
If you don’t want to commit to fulfilling a whole boat or don’t have enough people then don’t worry.  Register your interest with Jo Jackson
