Legal Cup 2018

The Legal Cup 2018 will be the 28th staging of this popular two day sailing regatta – and is set to be the most spectacular to date. As the main social, sporting and networking event for lawyers, the Legal Cup has established itself as one of the largest regattas in the country. 

Absolutely no previous sailing experience is necessary, as you will be accompanied by our professional skippers at all times whilst on the water. If you are an experienced sailor with your own yacht, you can register for a 'Private Entry'.

Team entry is available to all legal firms or suppliers to the legal industry. A team consists of 7-10 people who you invite. Some companies bring clients or business partners for a networking opportunity, others bring internal staff as a team building activity.  

Whatever your objectives, taking part provides an excellent way to network with, and promote your brand to some of the top-name companies in the legal industry. 90% of teams return each year, demonstrating the value for the teams who take part.

Racing Format

To minimise disruption to the working week, the regatta runs Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. Most teams join us on Friday evening to kick-start the social activities.

You and your team, with helpful coaching from your skipper and first mate will enjoy a morning of sail training before competing in a number of races over the two days.  

Saturday evening includes networking opportunities and the fabulous Gala Dinner, with a well supported fancy dress theme.  

At the end of the regatta trophies are awarded for the winners of each group and the overall winner, so there is plenty of opportunity to win some silverware.

Supporting Sail 4 Cancer

Sail 4 Cancer was set up in 2001 by a group of keen sailors who had all lost a close friend or relative to cancer.

Sail 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of water based respite days and holidays for families affected by cancer. The charity also makes grants to cancer care centres and supports research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. sailing) and how it can help prevent cancer and aid recovery post diagnosis.

From the moment you are diagnosed with cancer your life is taken over by hospital visits, treatments, tests, uncertainty, and often, financial worries. For a day or a week, Sail 4 Cancer takes cancer patients and their families away from the disease and the nightmare that they are living through and offers them the chance to rebuild relationships, create positive memories and have some quality fun time together.
