Giraglia Rolex Cup: 12th – 19th June 2004
Raced every year since 1953 over a variety of similar courses, the ‘Giraglia’ has grown in stature over the years and has now
evolved into the Giraglia Rolex Cup, a week-long regatta open to all offshore keelboats fitting into the permitted classes.
Considered by many to be the ‘Fastnet of the Mediterranean’, the Rolex Giraglia Cup is organised by the Yacht Club Italiano in
collaboration with the Yacht Club de France and in particular the Société Nautique de St Tropez. The event runs over a full week
of June, initially in the Gulf of St Tropez with inshore races, but from the fourth day, offshore, over a course that takes the fleet to
Genoa in Italy via a rocky outcrop just to the North of Corsica that goes by the name of La Giraglia.
