Online sign-up form, Notice of Race, entry fees, Harbour plan and route description can be found on this website. Sailing instructions will be available on this website by August 15.

Eligible boats must have a valid 2017 ORC Certificate in the IMS division ‘Sportboat’. Exact specifications can be found on: http://www.orc.org/rules/ORC%20Sportboat%20Class%20Rules%202017.pdf

ORC Sportboats
The ORC Sportboat class is in the Netherlands and internationally a rapidly growing keelboat class. This class closes the gap between small open boats and the traditional ORC and IRC cruiser racers. Hi-tech, spectacular and still affordable, also for yachting clubs. The ORC Sportboat class includes well known types as the J-70, Hunter707, FarEast28R, Maxfun 25,  Melges24 and many others. At the VOC Cup triple number scoring will apply.

The name of this event refers to the long sailing history of Enkhuizen, a medieval harbour town that was one of the six home ports of the Dutch East India Company VOC founded in 1602. The first Dutch sailor ever to visit China was born in Enkhuizen in 1544. EWVA will organise the VOC Cup in 2017 for the third time.
