The 2018 Rolex Giraglia featured 241 yachts, 212 competing in the offshore race following arrivals from Sanremo and the popular three-day inshore series in Saint-Tropez.
The Rolex Giraglia’s main prize, the Rolex Challenge Trophy and Rolex timepiece awarded to the overall race winner, was claimed by Dieter Schön’s Momo. Line honours winner in 2017, the predominantly German-crewed Maxi 72, seals an impressive double success. Fastest finisher this year was Tango, victor after an epic contest with two rival Wallycentos.
