Organised by the Yacht Club Italiano in association with the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez, the Giraglia Rolex Cup comprises three days of inshore racing in the bay of Saint-Tropez followed by a 243 nautical mile offshore race. The offshore component is one of the most renowned races in the Mediterranean, and has been a tradition for European sailors for over 50 years. From the start off the historic port of Saint-Tropez the fleet heads to the idyllic Iles des Hyères before turning east across the Ligurian Sea to round the Giraglia, a rocky islet off northern Corsica. This year the finish port is Genoa, Italy.
