Rolex Swan Cup

September 9 - September 16

Gazprom Swan Europeans - Blog - 21.05.15

This autumn Swans from around the world will gather at the Yacht Club Costa Smerelda in Porto Cervo for the Rolex Swan Cup. With upwards of 100 Swans competing this week long regatta transforms Porto Cervo into the centre of the Nautor’s Swan world. Drawing some of the most beautiful Swan yachts and many of the world’s top sailors, the Rolex Swan Cup provides a week of the spirited racing and gala social events for which Nautor’s Swan, Rolex and YCCS are renowned.

Individuals Racing

When racing with individuals our objective is to provide each crew member a great time racing. The two professional crew will train the crew to ensure that the racing is safe, fun and that everyone is able to make a valuable contribution to the team effort.  Although prior race or sailing experience is preferred, it is not essential. The training days represent a great opportunity for the crew member to get familiar with the yacht and the racing manoeuvres.
