Over 350 solicitors and barristers took to the Solent last week for a two-day regatta to raise money for a Cancer charity.

Every year the Manches Cup pits the legal sector's best sailors against each other. Law firm Banks Kelly won this year's race in Larissa, a Bavaria 36 (pictured above).

Simon Boulding, from regatta organisers Britannia Corporate Events, said: "On a final count we have managed to raise over £5000 for Sail4Cancer which they are thrilled about. This money is going towards their Teenage Sailing Weekends for this year to help youngsters with cancer regain their confidence."
