The Kenwood Corporation has announced that they have withdrawn sponsorship of the Hawaii International Offshore Series, formerly known as the Kenwood Cup

It is with deep regret that the Kenwood Corporation has informed Honolulu-based Royal Hawaiian Ocean Racing Club (RHORC) they will be unable to continue their sponsorship of the Hawaii International Offshore Series in 2002.

RHORC is currently seeking a new title sponsor and sub-sponsors for the event. RHORC is in the process of distributing the Official Notice and Conditions of Race for the Royal Hawaiian Cup Hawaii International Offshore Series that will be held in Hawaii from 4-14 August 2002.

The Race Notice and Entry Forms for the regatta may be found on the new website for the event at
