Reaching for new course record at the Giraglia Rolex Cup
The 60th edition of Giraglia Rolex Cup, one of the most renowned races in Europe which regularly attract about 200 yachts from all over Europe, will mark another milestone for the Esimit Europa yacht. The race, with a rich tradition, is organized by the Yacht Club Italiano in association with the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez and the Yacht Club de France. If the weather conditions will allow, the “blue giant” is going after the course record on the route from Saint Tropez to San Remo via famous La Giraglia rock. The team is well prepared to successfully counter the vagaries of the wind, the twists and the tactical challenges presented by the race course. The crew is hoping for better weather conditions that the year before (Saint Tropez to Genoa), when extremely light winds and occasional dead calms at open seas challenged the crew.
Further stops in this year’s season
This year the Esimit Europa 2 yacht will try to conquer all five regattas attending; Giraglia Rolex Cup, Palermo – Monte Carlo, Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, Bernetti Lombardini Cup and Barcolana. She will also try to beat a 9 year old speed record from Monaco to Porto Cervo (Sardinia, Italy) approved by the International Sailing Federation, under the World Sailing Speed Record Council Rule 21 (c) in a Powered Sailing System category. In 2013 the message of a united Europe will, besides the Mediterranean, be shared at some of the most demanding regattas in Germany, United Kingdom and Sweden.
