« 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.

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.
