GIRAGLIA ROLEX CUP

9 – 16 June 2018

The Giraglia Rolex Cup is Truly a Classic Event. Its first edition dates back from 1953, where the Yacht Clubs of France and Italy, envisioned the race as challenge between these countries that would favour relations after the Second World War.

On that first edition, 22 boats were at the start. With the passing years, the number of participants grew steadily, and in 1997 the event changed its name with the arrival of an important sponsor to become the Giraglia Rolex Cup. Today more than 250 boats join the race year after year, in the affectionately called “Old Lady of the Mediterranean”.

The Event Starts in Saint-Tropez, where 3 days of marvellous Serious Inshore Racing, in the Gulf of the lovely french town, are combined with Serious Fun Social Events during the evenings.

The Giraglia Rolex Cup is a sporting event that is truly a blend of passion, competition, fair play, glamour and “joie de vivre”.

“The attraction comes from a central spirit which has set it apart from other races since the beginning. Top professionals racing against Corinthians; different types of boat and each with a chance to win. This motivates people to be part of this mythical race” (Carlo Croce. President of World Sailing & Yacht Club Italiano)
