China Cup International Regatta 2012

A professional sounding caucasian voice announces through the radio : “Welcome competitors to the China Cup International Regatta” – that has to be the most distinctive part of the entire regatta which immediately sets itself apart from the usual regattas we are used to. The China Cup International Regatta is not only well managed with its internationally accredited race committee but also well known for the competitors racing the One Design Beneteau 40.7 who are internationally renowned and are a force to be reckoned with.
