« The Spirit »
of the H-Cup

First of all, it is about an outing at sea that has the "characteristics" of a "challenge" and is organised by the HCup team led by Luc Coppens.

It involves rules, difficulties, but also is a lot of fun.

It is also a challenge for the pontoons themselves, with each pontoon trying to participate with as many boats as possible.

As a professional, amateur, beginner, family, member of KYCN, WSKLum, VYN or other club, everyone is welcome as a participant in the H-Cup.

  • You are "obliged" to show good humour, friendliness and courtesy at the start, whereby the crews sail under their own responsibility.
  • At wind force 6 BF or more there will be no starting.
  • At the end of the HCup season all participating boats and those with special merits will be rewarded. That evening additional prizes will be drawn among all attendees.

Summer Challenge

The Summer Challenge runs from 15/07/21 to 29/08/21 (except 15/08/21) - every day of the week and you can participate as many times as you like.

We have prepared 1 course for you which remains the same throughout this period - the aim is to challenge yourself by improving your time each time you participate. You choose your start time, the direction of the course, etc... You note your start and finish times, as well as your time at each buoy crossing.

If you wish, you can send us your results after each participation to the email address hcup.kycn@gmail.com. We will put it in an excellent table and at the end of the challenge we will establish a ranking.

Of course, we count on your fair play.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send us an e-mail to hcup.kycn@gmail.com.
