Giraglia Rolex Cup 2017 Highlights:

Video above published Jun 29, 2017: The 2017 Giraglia Rolex Cup required patience, strength and skill to overcome the fickle weather that dominated the 65th edition. Some 210 yachts took part in the main event – the 241-nm offshore race from Saint-Tropez, France to Genoa, Italy via the northern tip of Corsica. Overall victory went to Freccia Rossa, a TP52 owned by Vadim Yakimenko, and line honours for fastest finish to Dieter Schön’s Maxi 72 from Germany, who were rewarded with Rolex timepieces, a tribute to excellence and superior performance. The event was marked by the respect for tradition and love of sailing that are hallmarks of the Giraglia Rolex Cup.
