Under the ClubSwan burgee, the programme of activity from 2013 -2020 for Swan owners includes numerous wonderful occasions to share their passion and join other owners in extraordinary locations for a special mix of racing, cruising and social events. Together with ClubSwan partners, Rolex and Gazprom, the calendar of events from 2013 through to 2020 flows seamlessly and reiterates the unique Swan owner experience.

For over 30 years, Nautor’s Swan and Rolex have been partners, hosting the Rolex Swan Cup in Porto Cervo on a biannual basis at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. This relationship expands in 2013 to include the inaugural ‘Rolex Swan Cup – Caribbean’, which will take place from 11 – 15 March 2013 at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda’s new clubhouse on the island of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. With racing and cruising entries welcomed, the shore-side social agenda will reflect the beauty and relaxed environment of the islands. The strong relationship has also led to confirmation of the Rolex Swan Cup being hosted at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda biannually through to 2020 – an exceptional commitment that will enable ClubSwan members to plan their racing agendas for many years to come.

The addition of Gazprom into the ClubSwan family during the latter part of 2012 has inspired a new racing class and circuit. In cooperation with the Yacht Club of Saint Petersburg, the Gazprom Swan 60 Class has been created and offers Swan 60 owners a fresh circuit of events, including the Gazprom Swan 60 World Championships during the Gazprom Swan European Regatta organised from 13 – 19 July 2013 in Cowes, Isle of Wight with the Royal Yacht Squadron. The second edition of the Nord Stream Race during September 2013 will round out the season in the Baltic in style.

ClubSwan continues their long-term relationships with some of the world’s most illustrious yacht clubs. Once again in 2013, the New York Yacht Club will open its doors for one design Club Swan 42 racing when teams consisting only of members from selected international yacht clubs travel to Newport, Rhode Island to compete at the start of the fall for the NYYC Invitational Cup presented by Rolex. Entering its third edition, the regatta has rapidly established itself on the international stage as one to compete at amongst the Corinthian sailing fraternity.

Swans racing in the most demanding offshore races such as the RORC Caribbean 600, Rolex Fastnet Race and the Rolex Middle Sea Race are also eligible for the exquisite Swan Challenge Trophies created by Asprey. Meanwhile, Swan owners participating in the glamorous Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in stylish Porto Cervo and Les Voiles de St Tropez compete for the ClubSwan award for the highest place Swan.

The 2013 activity is also heightened by the extension of the SwanLine with continued new builds at the yard in Pietarsaari, Finland where in-house craftsmen are working notably on the Swan 60, 80 and 105 to meet the growing demand for Swan’s stunning sailing yachts.
