Rolex Giraglia

A historic and revered event in the Mediterranean yachting calendar, the Rolex Giraglia has been organised by the Yacht Club Italiano since 1953. Following an overnight race from Sanremo the fleet gathers in the chic harbour of Saint-Tropez for three days of inshore competition before embarking on a 241-nautical mile offshore race via the Giraglia, a rocky outcrop off the northern tip of Corsica, to the finish port of Genoa. Throughout its history the event has been defined by its camaraderie and team spirit.
