Was established in 1980, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup is an event that you dont’n want to miss. Large and powerful yachts engaged in direct competition in a spectacular and challenging environment. Organized by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and the International Maxi Association, the event has been the jewel of Rolex’s international yachting portfolio since 1985! This year they are celebrating its 25th edition.
For the international fleet of 35 Maxi yachts gathered in Porto Cervo for the 2014 regatta the competition is at its midway point. Those with the ambition to win and the determination to follow through are coming to the fore.
Featuring all-out race boats, all close to 72 feet in length, the fifth running of the Mini Maxi Rolex World Championship is one of the standout features of this year’s Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup.
Interesting Fact: Positioned bow to stern, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup fleet measures close to 1km (962.81m), the equivalent of nearly ten FIFA World Cup pitches. The Mini Maxis make up 171.14m.
