Giraglia 2018 : the spirit of yachting

The 66th edition of the Rolex Giraglia takes place from 8 – 16 June and marks the 20th anniversary of Rolex's involvement with the event.
Organized by the Yacht Club Italiano, with the support of the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez, this internationally renowned competition regularly attracts an impressive fleet of over 250 yachts.
A major fixture in the Mediterranean yachting season, the Rolex Giraglia offers both inshore and offshore racing serving up the perfect blend of camaraderie and competition.

The Rolex Giraglia is a true festival of sailing.
Saint-Tropez provides an elegant and exclusive setting for the start of this offshore yacht race, which regularly draws an impressively global fleet of over 250 crews.
Following arrival races, the fleet gathers in Saint-Tropez for three days of inshore competition before embarking on a 241-nautical mile offshore race to Genoa, Italy via the Giraglia rock, an imposing outcrop of historic navigational importance off Corsica.
The Rolex Giraglia is more than a yacht race, it is also a symbol of friendship between countries, sailors and yacht clubs.
