Discover the 2016 Giraglia Rolex Cup as a record fleet of 268 yachts sets sail from the chic starting port of Saint-Tropez and rounds the Giraglia Rock in the Mediterranean, only to encounter unprecedented winds. The weather turns the final leg to Genoa, Italy into a high-speed roller coaster. The Giraglia Rolex Cup provides a tremendous test of skill and stamina for both crew and yacht, and race winners are rewarded with specially-engraved Rolex timepieces. Watch as this 25-minute documentary captures the beauty, excitement, history and drama of this blue-water classic.
