The Giraglia Rolex Cup, which celebrates its 61st edition in 2013, will host over 200 yachts representing almost 20 countries. The week-long event on June 14-22 commences with a 58nm race from Sanremo, Italy to Saint-Tropez, France. The historic port of Saint-Tropez then plays hosts to three days of inshore racing before the start of the main event on Wednesday 19 June – the 243-nautical mile offshore race. Following its departure from Saint-Tropez the fleet heads southwest towards the idyllic Iles d’Hyères before turning to cross the open sea to the symbolic rounding of the Giraglia, a rocky islet off northern Corsica, and racing on to the finish in Genoa, Italy.
