This is a testament to the apotheoses of Corinthian contest, as well as the good-fellowship linked with the game which for the 4th edition of Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup (from 15th to 19th September), 6 of the seventeen entered yacht club squads would be welcomed back as 4-time veterans of this greatly-regarded show.
Coming from all parts of the world, the returning teams –the Japan Sailing Federation, Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, Team Greece Yacht Charter, Real Club Náutico de Barcelona (ESP), Royal Cork Yacht Club (IRL) the Royal Yacht Squadron (GBR), as well as the 2-time defending champ, the Royal Canadian Yacht Club – are attracted by the loudness of the on-the-water contest that is enhanced by well known social events takes place at Harbour Court, New York Yacht Club’s clubhouse overlooking Newport harbor.
Woven into the cloth of this show is the historic collaboration of Rolex and New York Yacht Club that was forged in the 50s. Via this braving out association, one of yachting’s top traditions was established with a winning sailor being offered with a Rolex timepiece in identification of achieving excellence in the contest.
On behalf the Japan Sailing Federation team; Yoshihiko Hattori said that they are proud to be back in this sophisticated and prestigious show.
This is a great opportunity to represent the most prestigious clubs in the world, and also the country. This really works as an important motivation for teams which repeatedly undertake the competitive and logistical challenges that are inherent in taking part in a show of this caliber.
