Giraglia Rolex Cup 2018 – Another epic edition

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Jun 16, 2018: For the triumphant crews at the 2018 Rolex Giraglia victory came courtesy of impressive comebacks in the 241-nm offshore race. Line honours was claimed by Tango in a time just short of 24 hours and after an epic contest with two rival Wallycentos Galateia and Magic Carpet Cubed. Following an intense competition between six Maxi 72s, Dieter Schön’s Momo mounted an impressive recovery in the second half of the race to seal overall victory on handicap and secure the Rolex Challenge Trophy and Rolex timepiece. An international fleet of 212 yachts contested the 66th edition of this historic offshore race noted for its close competition and spirit of camaraderie.

Rolex Giraglia 2018 – 14 June – Tango first to Genoa

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Jun 14, 2018: Line honours at the 2018 Rolex Giraglia came down to a contest between the competing Wallycentos. All three yachts – Galateia, Magic Carpet Cubed and Tango – held leadership in a tactically challenging and exciting race. After nearly 24 hours at sea, it was Tango who arrived first in Genoa some nine minutes ahead of Galateia. Magic Carpet Cubed, line honours winner in 2016, was third to finish. Late on Thursday afternoon, the vast majority of the 212-strong fleet were on the approach to the race’s iconic landmark, the Giraglia rock. The race to be crowned overall winner on handicap is now on.

The chase for line honours is expected to be wide open with three Wally Centos, six Maxi 72s and the 100-ft Maxi Leopard 3 all in contention to finish first. Conditions are expected to be light with a new race record unlikely. Following a spectacular race start in the bay of Saint-Tropez, the fleet has begun the long leg to the race’s emblematic landmark and virtual halfway point, the Giraglia rock, located off the northern tip of Corsica. The Rolex Giraglia, celebrating its 66th edition, is organised by the Yacht Club Italiano in collaboration with the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez. Rolex Giraglia 2018 videos playlist here.
