The Rolex Swan Cup is the ultimate opportunity to experience the luxury and high performance of Nautor’s Swan yachts. Every year the race location alternates between organizer Yacht Club Costa Smeralda’s two prestigious club locations – Sardinia’s north-eastern Emerald Coast and Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.
The 2017 Rolex Swan Cup Caribbean featured ideal weather conditions and spectacular racing by the international Swan fleet. Don Macpherson’s Swan 90 Freya and Leonardo Ferragamo’s ClubSwan50 Cuordileone have been crowned champions of the Rolex Swan Cup Caribbean 2017.
Freya, with Volvo Ocean Race veteran Kimo Worthington calling tactics, scored an impressive run of three straight wins out of four races and can now boast victory in the Swan Cup on both sides of the Atlantic. Ferragamo at the helm of Cuordileone had a tough fight on his hands from the off with the second participating ClubSwan 50 Earlybird.
