China Cup International Regatta starts tomorrow - Sail-World Asia will be reporting 'from the rail'. Big splashy party in Hong Kong tonight, strong wind forecast for tomorrow's passage race to Longcheer, Shenzhen. One item of note: Michel Desjoyeux is sailing on a Beneteau 40.7 with China Team - we are just wondering, will he find the courses a little on the short side?

More from the coal face, shortly.
