Video: Highlights from the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in Porto Cervo

By Katia Damborsky   11 September 2018

Between 2-8 September, Sardinia’s Porto Cervo saw exhilarating action from two international regatta events.

Last week, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and the Rolex Maxi 72 World Championship commenced on the northern coast of Sardinia at Yacht Club Costa Smeralda.

A fleet of yachts took to the water to compete in thrilling races around the coastline of Porto Cervo, exhibiting quality performance and expert precision.

Yachts sliced through the water head-to-head through Bomb Alley, one of the most favoured locations for racing, and rounded the island of Spargi before heading back towards La Maddalena Archipelago.

In each class respectively, Momo, Topaz, Grande Horace, Lyra, Supernikka and H20 took home first place trophies.

One of the most remarkable victories came from the Wally 77 Lyra, whose scorline comprised five wins and two seconds, despite this being the first time her owner-driver has competed in a regatta.

Now, between 9-16 September, a fleet of 115 Swan yachts will gather in Porto Cervo to celebrate the 20th edition of the Rolex Swan Cup.

A gem of the Mediterranean, Porto Cervo has long established its reputation as a superior destination for luxury yacht charters and regattas. Home to a fine selection of superyachts available for charter, Porto Cervo blends authentic Italian culture with the buzz of refined glamour and luxury.
