Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and Nautor’s Swan, together with its long-standing partner Rolex, are pleased to confirm that the Rolex Swan Cup 2020 will take place from 7 to 13 September, in the beautiful setting of Porto Cervo, Sardinia, in full compliance with the Government’s recommendations for the safety and health of all participants.
The 21st edition of the Rolex Swan Cup, a regatta that takes place every two years, has all the ingredients to be spectacular: an international fleet, a number of passionate owners, talented sailors, professionals and amateurs, a splendid yacht club and a title sponsor, with over 60 years of commitment to the sport.
“The Rolex Swan Cup is one of the first sailing events after a forced rest season and we are amazed by the response we have already had in terms of participation,” said Enrico Chieffi, Vice President of Nautor Group. “More than 50 yachts have already registered, confirming that our owners are excited to participate in the race and are looking forward to racing together again in Sardinia, celebrating their love of the sea, the sport of sailing and our brand.”
The teams present at the event are ready to experience an exciting week of challenges, challenge their friends and relax in the Sardinian paradise with their families and guests.
The regatta, which will once again prove to be one of the most eagerly awaited and spectacular experiences on the sailing scene, is a showcase of all the Swan yachts built over the years, which will be divided into different classes: Swan Maxi Class (60 feet and above), Swan Grand Prix Class (60 feet and below), Sparkman & Stephens Class, and the Swan One Design Classes (ClubSwan 36, ClubSwan 42, Swan 45 and ClubSwan 50).
