Tonight the Overall Nations Trophy will be awarded by HM King Constantine, ISAF President of Honour
Along with the medals presented later today, the top overall performing nation will be honoured by the awarding of the King's Trophy by HM King Constantine.

The King's Trophy, which is an impressive lead crystal sail sitting on an enamelled blue sea, was especially commissioned by His Majesty and made by Aspreys of London.

So who will receive it tonight.

After yesterday's racing, France took the leaderboard as the top nation, with Australia and Italy chasing hard a mere 4 points behind.

Italy are the defending holders, having won in both 1994 and 1998, but the Trophy has always remained elusive for the French, their closest claim being third overall nation in 1994. Meanwhile, Australia placed 8th in 1994 and 6th in 1998, so certainly look set to improve on past performance and place in the top three in 2002.

So whilst France leads the overall King's Trophy, how about continentally.

In Oceania it is Australia who hold the lead, with Japan leading for Asia, South Africa for Africa and the Middle East, and the United States for America.
