Dear friends, one of the most prestigious sailing races of the season, Giraglia Rolex Cup 2018, awaits us!
The offshore 243-mile race stood the test of time and is deemed one of the oldest in Europe. This summer, Giraglia Rolex Cup will take place for the 66th time. For some it is just dry arithmetics, for others it is a chance to have the most important adventure of the summer.
The program is exceptionally rich: the night race from San Remo to the Saint-Tropez port, three days of coastal races in Saint-Tropez and the offshore race 243 marine miles long with the finish in Italian Genova, whose key point will be going around the famous Giraglia cliff that gave its name to the race.
Giraglia Rolex Cup is a unique opportunity to leave the comfort zone behind and visit picturesque places of France and Italy, enjoy the fine local cuisine and a fabulous festive atmosphere.
Instructors of the Arctic Energy academy, Olympic champions and current sailing world champions will share their marine experience with you.
A lecture course from the professor of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on the deck of our racing Maxi class yacht will be a pleasant bonus.
