Interport 2018 Ruffian 23 Team Racing Challenge Ireland versus Hong Kong

The 6th Interport Ruffian 23 challenge between Ireland and Hong Kong took place in Dun Laoghaire last weekend.

The 12-strong team of Ruffian sailors from RHKYC arrived in Dun Laoghaire on Thursday evening and joined the Irish sailors for post-DBSC racing drinks in the RStGYC.

The 1st Interport Ruffian challenge took place in 1993 in Hong Kong with the Hong Kong Ruffian sailors coming to Dun Laoghaire the following year. The challenge was revitalised in 2009 when an Irish contingent travelled to Hong Kong.
Since then the event has occurred every 3 years with the Irish team travelling to Hong Kong again in
2015, and the Hong Kong team coming to Dun Laoghaire in 2012 and again this year.
