Giraglia Rolex Cup, from Genoa to Saint Tropez with elegance and endurance


In one month, more than 200 yachts will participate in the Giraglia Rolex Cup. The oldest race in the Mediterranean Sea became an unmissable event for 2 000 committed sailors, attracted by the unique charm of this race who combines fair play and sportsmanship for 63 years.

Rallying all the crews, Saint-Tropez will be at the heart of an exceptional week of nautical competition and will host three days of inshore races, from Sunday June 14th to Tuesday June 16th. Wednesday, June 17th, will be given the kick-off of the main event, the long race: 243 miles of navigation between Saint-Tropez and Genoa via the Giraglia rock.

For 63 years the sailors made the Giraglia rock a nautical pilgrimage site. This small islet located at the north east of Corsica symbolizes half of the route between Saint-Tropez and Genoa.

The 2015 edition will begin June 12. The awards ceremony will be held at the Yacht Club Italiano, in Genoa, June 29, at the end of the race off the coast of the Giraglia Rolex Cup.

Partner since 1998 of the Giraglia Rolex Cup Rolex is proud to be a major partner of the sailing world for more than fifty years. By being associated to highly demanding races as the Rolex Fastnet Race, the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race or perpetuating the tradition with the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, Rolex has a special relationship with this sport, in perfect harmony with its own values: excellence, precision and team spirit.
