The 33rd annual Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup regatta takes place from 1-7 September in the stunning setting of Costa Smeralda, Sardinia.
As one of the highlights of the Mediterranean yachting diary every September, this year is no exception with an incredible line up of impressive yachts participating in seven days of competitive sailing in challenging yet spectacular conditions. Organised by the Yacht Club Smeralda (YCCS) in conjunction with the International Maxi Association (IMA) and Rolex SA as official sponsor, the regatta is currently in its 33rd year.
The brainchild of the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and its president, the Aga Khan, the event sees 30.5m (100') and above sailing yachts taking part to showcase the very best in cutting edge technology and design innovation. Also participating in the World Championships is the 18-24-metre (59'-79') category classed under the Mini Maxi class.
