The Legal Cup formally known as the Manches Cup is a must do event for any company in the legal industry. Setting out from Port Hamble, this event is basically a day of informal racing with a bit of guidance and help on hand from the Skipper and Mate, the event is as much about the social and networking opportunities as it is about the racing.
Thus racing has a wholesome bit of added spice, but before hostilities can commence, the morning is devoted to a bit of training and basic race preparation. It is only following the extremely sleek and streamlined racing lunch held aboard that sails are hoisted in anger and a series of three short races are held to decide bragging rights.
Following this, the yachts return to Port Hamble for a spot of afternoon tea and the prize giving. This is a great team building exercise and a lot of fun for all involved. It is also worth mentioning that crewmembers are welcome to stay aboard the yachts on the night prior to the event if required and there is no extra charge for this.
The Legal Cup has become one of the largest Regattas in the calendar and has been going for 29 years.
