Rolex Swan Cup 2018 – A dramatic final day

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Sep 16, 2018: An intense, compelling 2018 Rolex Swan Cup witnessed competition go down to the wire across all six classes. German yacht OneGroup was crowned winner of the inaugural ClubSwan 50 World Championship following a momentous final day with Porron IX retaining the Swan 45 world title. Italian yacht Mela is the new ClubSwan 42 European champion while Six Jaguar (Sparkman & Stephens), Plis-Play (Swan Maxi) and Solte (Grand Prix) became class champions. The Rolex Swan Cup, defined by its close partnership between Rolex, Nautor’s Swan and the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, magnificently portrayed the event’s diverse characteristics from innovation to tradition and from close competition to fair-play.

Rolex Swan Cup 2018 – Appreciating beauty

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Sep 14, 2018: Three days of racing across six classes have concluded at the 2018 Rolex Swan Cup hosted by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Porto Cervo, Sardinia. In the one design championships action is set to go down to the wire with Onegroup (ClubSwan 50 World Championship), Porron IX (Swan 45 World Championship) and Mela (ClubSwan 42 European Championship) currently assuming leadership. One of the compelling stories at the 20th edition of the event is the record presence of ten Swan 65s. Owned and skippered by passionate individuals, these yachts created ground-breaking feats in their heyday of the 1970s and today remain beautiful boats to race and cruise, admired by the sailing community.

ROLEX SWAN CUP 2018 – NO MARGIN FOR ERROR

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Sep 11, 2018: The 2018 Rolex Swan Cup is underway in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, with an impressive and diverse 110-strong fleet from 17 different countries. The 20th edition of the event welcomes a wide range of Nautor’s Swan designs spanning 50-years of the marque’s history. Among the highlights of the week’s competition is the inaugural running of the ClubSwan 50 World Championship. Comprising twelve highly-competitive one design yachts the five days of racing are set to showcase close-fought, dramatic action. Leading the competition after the first day was German yacht Onegroup. The rocky outcrops and challenging waters of Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda will herald equally compelling action across all classes comprising the Sparkman & Stephens classic division as well as the ClubSwan 42 European Championship and Swan 45 World Championship.

Rolex Swan Cup 2018 – Preview

Great competition in an enviable environment, a prevailing spirit of fair play and an opportunity to sail yachts renowned for their grace, enduring appeal and rich heritage, the Rolex Swan Cup is one of the seminal events in the sport of yachting. The event is also defined by the historic, three-way partnership between Nautor’s Swan, the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS), and Rolex, whose association with sailing marks 60 years in 2018.

The 20th edition of the event will be held in Porto Cervo, Sardinia from 9-16 September and is set to welcome an international fleet in excess of 115 yachts with models ranging from classic Sparkman & Stephens designs dating back to the mid-1960s, highly-competitive one design classes, and cutting-edge Swan Maxis and Super Maxis.

Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2018 - Precision Marks Out the Winners

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Sep 8, 2018: The 2018 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup ended in traditional fashion with the final prize giving on the Piazza Azzurra in front of the Yacht Costa Smeralda. The winners in each class were rewarded with the respect of their peers, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup trophies and, of course, Rolex timepieces, the recognized emblem of achievement. The week of racing on the waters of the Costa Smeralda and the Maddalena Archipelago, provided excellent competition for the 41 competing yachts. The victors were defined by the perfection of their execution both in preparation and during racing. 2019 marks the 30th edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, which was founded by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in 1980, is hosted in cooperation with the International Maxi Association and has been supported by Rolex since 1985.

“This coastline may present a tranquil scene, but this is a battle for honours,” says Commodore Riccardo Bonadeo of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup. Every September the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda welcomes the most advanced craft to the stunning Porto Cervo in Sardinia, for a week-long event like no other on the sporting calendar. Attracting a peerless line-up of sailing power, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup is also an essential rendezvous for innovators of cutting-edge yachting technology.

Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2018 Midpoint

Rolex World of Yachting video above published Sep 5, 2018: At the midpoint of the 2018 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup the serious contenders in each class are beginning to be identified. With three days of racing left, only one thing can be taken for granted: the extraordinary racing area created by the geography of the Costa Smeralda and the Maddalena Archipelago. 41 yachts are competing at the 29th edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, founded by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, hosted in cooperation with the International Maxi Association and supported by Rolex since 1985. Today, as always, the event is the pinnacle of big boat racing and the six-day regatta attracts a diverse array of Maxi monohulls all measuring over 18.29 metres. With tradition, innovation, elegance, technology and performance all represented, this vaunted gathering has compelling allure.

UPDATE Sep 6, 2018 With the exception of the Super Maxi group, where the points are very close, the top players in each division are now becoming clear and the leaders of the provisional classifications are consolidating their positions. More here.
