Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2018 The Complete Contest
At the midpoint of the 2018 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup the serious contenders in each class are beginning to be identified. With three days of racing left, only one thing can be taken for granted: the extraordinary racing area created by the geography of the Costa Smeralda and the Maddalena Archipelago. 41 yachts are competing at the 29th edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, founded by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, hosted in cooperation with the International Maxi Association and supported by Rolex since 1985. Today, as always, the event is the pinnacle of big boat racing and the six-day regatta attracts a diverse array of Maxi monohulls all measuring over 18.29 metres. With tradition, innovation, elegance, technology and performance all represented, this vaunted gathering has compelling allure.
