Philosophy & Vision

  • YMC Alma Mater Race will be a racing event for fun, in the same way as Nations Cup.
  • To promote the sport of sailing to wider general public as well as to build a soft linkage to colleges / local universities.
  • To create new dynamics and additional "horizontal" bonding among Members of the RHKYC community.
  • To identify and engage potential supporters and participants for our upcoming series of University Initiative events.

Design of the Race

  • Team identities will be self declared by competing teams, similar to Nations Cup.
  • Team identities will be based on academic institutes or units, acceptable examples of team identities include Team CUHK, Team LSE, Team HKU FacMed, Team CityU Business School, Team DGS.
  • Each team shall be formed in such a way that over 50% of the crew have affiliation with the same academic institute as their team identity.
  • When a competing team comprises of 3 or less members, all of them need to have affiliation with the same academic institute as their team identity.
  • Examples of academic institute include local and non-local universities, colleges, high schools, schools.
  • Examples of affiliation include alumni, academic staff, non-academic staff, students.
  • School flags, stickers will be allowed and encouraged to be displayed on the boom only during this race.
