Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2020 confirmed
Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2020 confirmed to take place from August 30 to September 4
The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in agreement with Nautor’s Swan shipyard and the International Maxi Association, and with the approval of institutional partner Rolex, has confirmed that the traditional September regattas, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and Rolex Swan Cup, will take place as originally scheduled.
Adjusted Event Set-up
Due to the pandemic, the regattas will be held in a modified mode:
- registration procedures will be streamlined through digital channels
- the skippers’ briefing and the prizegiving – which will take place outdoors – will involve a limited number of crew members in proportion to the spaces.
- With regard to social events, it will be possible to hold the traditional owners’ dinners at the YCCS respecting the necessary distancing, while it will not be possible to organise crew parties.
- It has also been decided to cancel the lay day during the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, which will, therefore, take place from Sunday 30 August to Friday 4 September.
This will concentrate the sporting competition and will leave two days of separation before the start of the Rolex Swan Cup, in order to minimise the presence of teams and boats from the two events at the same time. In order to ensure optimal organisation and safety for participants in the regattas, club members, and visitors to the YCCS facilities, the evolution of government regulations and the protocols of the Italian Sailing Federation will, however, be constantly monitored, together with the development of the Covid-19 emergency.
Berths available on Volvo 65 Sisi for Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup
During the first week of September, the most innovative maxi sailing yachts from around the world gather in Porto Cervo for spectacular sailing amidst the islands of the La Maddalena archipelago, particularly when powered by the mistral wind. The fleet is divided into various categories based on boat types. Volvo 65 Sisi has individual berths available so you can be part of all the action and this exceptional event.
We will have two days training prior to the race, starting the 29th. For the race, we will have 3 professionals of our team on board including skipper Gerwin Jansen.
