Celebration of the Sea
The 2020 edition of the beloved Rolex Swan Cup will be taking place 7 to 13 September, organized by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS) in the yachting hub of Porto Cervo, Sardinia. Over 60 competing yachts, Nautor’s Swan, the YCCS and its longstanding partner Rolex will come together in a convivial atmosphere for the “Celebration of the Sea” theme over the week-long festivities, which marks the 21st edition of the event. "Despite – and in part because of – the challenging months of the global health crisis, the organizers and owners of the regatta felt it would be a perfect way to mark a turning point in the enforced time apart, to navigate and respect the sea together among kindred, passionate sailors", the company says. "The regatta – the second of the 2020 Mediterranean season and one of the largest set to take place this year – will be carried out in full respect of the Italian Government’s guidelines for the safety and health of all participants".
The Rolex Swan Cup’s seven classes will include the Swan Maxi Class(vessels of 60 feet and above), Swan Grand Prix Class(vessels below 60 feet), the historic Sparkman & Stephens Class, and the Swan One Design Classes(including for the ClubSwan 36, ClubSwan 42, Swan 45 and ClubSwan 50 fleets).
