NATIONS' CUP 

26 April 

Any keelboat with an RHKATI handicap can enter. The unique feature is that everybody on board an individual boat must be of the same nationality - born, passport, language fluency. Are you up for this chance to claim the waters of HK for your country?

You don't have to be a member of the RHKYC - or ANY club in HK for that matter. Heck, you don't even have to live here. Fly in Ben Ainslie if you want!

There is NO restriction on the number of boats that can enter for a country - so if for example there are 15 boats representing Hong Kong, so more the better.
