Highlights from the 2022 Legal Cup

Legal Cup 2022

Following a reduced program of events during 2021, we were delighted to start off our 2022 regatta calendar with the popular Legal Cup. The 31st staging of the event, teams from some of the UK’s biggest law firms joined us in Port Hamble for a weekend of sailing and entertainment.

Teams from the legal industry including Linklaters, Bird & Bird, Freshfields and Dechert joined us on Friday 27th May for a training session out on the Solent, with guests from Herbert Smith Freehills and Ashurst arriving on the morning of Saturday 28th, ready to head out on the water for a day of racing.

Raising money and awareness for alternative education provisions

Winds were favourable, which meant the teams enjoyed three exhilarating races before heading over to Cowes where guests would prepare for a James Bond inspired gala dinner at Cowes Yacht Haven. The objective – to have fun and raise money for Britannia’s 2022 not for profit partner, Plan B Alternative Provisions.

Guests were treated to a night of good food, complementary martinis (shaken of course, not stirred) courtesy of our partners at Salcombe Gin, casino tables, music and fundraising activities including heads or tails and a raffle, helping to raise a staggering £1260 for the organisation.
