Esimit Europa 2: The sailing world's new top dog — RT: "The yacht Esimit Europa 2, which sails under the European Union flag, can now be called the best in the world after winning last weekend's Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup. “Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing!” So said American football coach Henry Russel, whose words are held in high regard in the sporting world. The Esimit Europa 2 is the latest illustrious examples of that maxim. . . . The next big event in the sailing world – the Lombardini Cup for the Bernetti Trophy in the Gulf of Trieste – will take place on October 7."
