In 2006 Danilo Salsi’s DSK reached the podium, while for the following four editions Hendrik Brandis’s Earlybird achieved 1st place. The 2016 edition was won by Christian Plump’s Elena Nova, while in 2018 Luis Senis helmed Porron IX as the winner of the class.
The ClubSwan 42 Class entered the Rolex Swan Cup in 2008 with Kora 4 winner of that and the following edition. Natalia Brailou conquered the podium with the ClubSwan 42 Natalia for the successive three editions (2012-2014-2016), gained the record as the first woman winning a Swan One Design Class at the Rolex Swan Cup. In 2018, Mela won first place with Andrea Rossi at the helm.
