All is ready for the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2016.VIDEO

maxi_rolexThe Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup (September 4-10, Porto Cervo, Italy) was born to provide the largest, most powerful yachts with an opportunity to compete directly in a suitably challenging environment. Continuing that philosophy, it is also widely regarded as a showcase for the latest advances in design and technology.

The Costa Smeralda has provided the stunning setting and testing conditions ever since the first Maxi World Championship was held there in 1980. The brainchild of the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and its president, the Aga Khan, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup is an eagerly anticipated annual event attracting a sizeable fleet of yachts all over 60 feet (18.29 metres) in length. 2016 marks the 27th edition of the competition and includes the vaunted Rolex Maxi 72 World Championship.
