04 Feb Approaching ROLEX SWAN CUP 2020
The 21st edition of the Rolex Swan Cup will take place from September 7th to 13th, 2020.
Since 1980 this iconic regatta has taken place in Porto Cervo every even year thanks to the coordination of Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and with Rolex as title sponsor.
Some quick facts:
- The first winner yacht was Swan 39 Black Swan, designed by Ron Holland.
- The Swan yacht which has won the greatest number of Swan Cups is Swan 45 Earlybird, owned by Henrik Brandis; for four consecutive events, Earlybird gained the highest place on the podium: in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014.
- On the other hand, Swan 46 Eurosia owned by the Vaccari brothers triumphed in 1990, 1992 and 1996.
For the 2020 edition the challenge will be tough and the winner will be only be known after the very last race!
