Are you ready for the Giraglia Rolex Cup 2017? VIDEO

The 65th edition of the Giraglia Rolex Cup takes place from 09 – 17 June 2017. Organized by the Yacht Club Italiano, with the support of the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez, this internationally renowned event attracts around 3000 sailors.

A reference point in the Mediterranean yachting season, the Giraglia Rolex Cup offers both offshore and inshore racing serving up the perfect blend of camaraderie and competition.

Following races from Marseille (France) and Sanremo (Italy), the fleet will gather in the chic harbor os Saint Tropez for three days of inshore competition before embarking on a 241-nautical mile offshore race to Genoa (Italy) via the Giraglia, a rocky outcrop off the northern tip of Corsica.

The event was established in 1953, in the aftermath of the Second World War, to help repair relations between Italy and France. It has been held every year since and has developed into one of the biggest sailing festivals of the Mediterranean season, with around 3,000 professional and amateur crew members from all over Europe and beyond taking part.
