Rolex Farr 40 World Championship 2015 - highlights video above - Published on Oct 8, 2015
The 2015 Rolex Farr 40 World Championships marked the culmination of the season for the high-performance circuit of one-design yacht racing. The 18th edition, hosted by Long Beach Yacht Club (LBYC) in California, attracted 17 boats from six nations. With rules that guarantee identical yachts and the boat owner at the helm, the only difference between winning and losing is the skill of the crew. After an intense battle, victory went to Groovederci . Her owner, John Demourkas, was presented with a specially-engraved Rolex Yacht-Master watch.
