Giraglia Rolex Cup
Giraglia Rolex Cup 2016.
We currently have availability for individual crew places, team placements and full yacht charter for the 2016 Giraglia Rolex Cup, starting in San Remo on the evening of the 10th June. This week long regatta covers all aspects of yacht racing.
Firstly, a coastal race from San Remo to St Tropez, starting at midnight, this in itself is a spectacular event to watch and take part in, 70+ yachts on the same start line in the darkness, sent off with a departing firework display, courtesy of the Yacht Club San Remo.
Secondly, 3 days of action packed inshore racing in the stunning bay of St Tropez, with the obligatory Rolex crew party to attend after the second day. Always very tough competition here with the local boats always being the ones to watch, last year we were pleased to finish second in our class of 48 yachts in 2 of the 3 races.
Thirdly, The Giraglia race itself. Originating shortly after WWII, to rebuild relationships between France and Italy, this race traditionally starts in St Tropez then the fleet head to the Giraglia, a tiny island just North of Corsica. From there the destination and finish line can be any of 3 venues, Genoa, San Remo or more recently Monaco. With a 24hr welcoming reception laid on the fastest and the slowest yachts are all overwhelmed by the rolling arrival party.
