Rolex’s partner Yacht Club Costa Smeralda has been hosting prestigious regattas for the last 50 years. The 28th edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2017 is one such race that features the best sailing competitors in the world. It is an opportunity to showcase the best in technology, innovation and design. The race represents power and elegance, and each competitor must perform with excellence, perfection and precision to compete and be crowned as winners.
Defending champion Hap Fauth’s Bella Mente, a three-time competition champion, won the first race, but it was Dieter Schön’s Momo, from Germany, who was the victor of the 2017 Rolex Maxi 72 World Championship. The race took place from September 3rd to 9th in one of the most glamorous, and yet challenging locations in the world, the waters of Porto Cervo.
