ECC Charter (May 2022)

THE COMPLETE CHARTER DOCUMENT VERSION MAY 2023: ECC Charter Rev 19

The Engineering Challenge Cup (ECC) is intended as an annual multinational fun sporting event involving non-aggressive, non-professional sailing with the focus on the social side. The participants are people who like sailing and have an association with the engineering and contracting industries. ECC entails visiting Mediterranean regions, meeting their people and enjoying their history and culture. Costs will be minimised so that employees at all levels may be able to participate.

In memory of Jose Miguel Martinez who lost his life on Day 1 of the 2017 event, the Jose Miguel Martinez Trophy (pictured) will be awarded for the winner of the special race held on the first day.
