Hublot has always been close to the world of sailing and the sea, firstly through its very name ("Hublot" means "porthole" in French) and the shape of its watches, but also through the prestigious partnerships such as the prestigious Monaco Oceanographic Museum and its Institute and the glamorous Marina dI Porto Cervo in Sardinia.

Founded in 2012 by ship-owners who love sailing, the Great Sinan Cup Regatta has been successfully held three times. As the only domestic professional sailing event that covers the Xisha coastline and has the farthest distance from shore, it has brought the attention of the social elites who love sailing together, and it is known as the "choice of ship-owners" in terms of sailing events. Along the Xisha voyage, players not only will go through the "Ancient Maritime Silk Route", enjoy the scenery of limpid sea, but also land on the Quanfu Island. There will be held a ceremony in commemoration of the great ancient Chinese marine history, as well as to carry on activities on environmental protection. With its popularity among sailing enthusiasts, Hublot provides great support to the Great Sinan Cup Regatta to jointly make contributions to the development of modern marine culture and lifestyle in China.

Hublot shares the same values and philosophy."

We share the same spiritual philosophy of traditional heritage and future innovation with Hublot. The art of fusion will continue now and in the future within Sinan Regatta. "
