Marconi to be honoured at the Voiles de Saint-Tropez for Trophée Rolex


For its tenth edition, the Trophée Rolex highlights the specific category of the Marconi B Group

Engaged in the Voiles de Saint Tropez, which will take place from Saturday 26 September to Sunday 4 October, these monohulls dates 1970s correspond to a turning point in modern sailing. They will be thirteen to try to win and register their name on this key classic sailing trophy.

Marconi: The most modern of classic yachts

They do not have the splendor of their elder or the wardrobe of the yesteryear schooners but yet their history is closely linked to modern sailing.

Thirteen monohulls in vying for the Rolex trophy are all out of the yards between 1962 and 1970. An era marked by the creation of a new range of yachts, one of the cruise boats.

Solid, marine, habitable and fast, these monohulls whose length is between 11 and 15 meters could run the mythical race of Fastnet and then go on a cruise along the French and Spanish coasts. This revolution in navigation mode perfectly corresponded to the spirit of post-war period during which the shipyards were at half-mast and the Marina in full renewal activity.

Rolex is proud to be a major partner of the world of sailing for more than fifty years.

Partnering with races especially demanding 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 harmony with the values dear to the brand: excellence, precision and team spirit.
