Last weekend more than 2500 people from the industry descended on Cowes on the Isle of Wight to take part in the Little Britain Challenge Cup 2006.

Little Britain, whose sponsors include Building, is the biggest construction industry yachting regatta in Europe, and this year 235 boats competed. A highlight of the three-day event was a Wild West themed party with Dolly Parton look-alikes. The overall winner of the regatta was support services group Amey with its yacht The Amey Love Shack.
