The prizegiving on the observatory deck of the Yacht Club de Monaco closed the 67th edition of the Rolex Giraglia 2019. Several prizes were awarded and there was a good number of entries in this Mediterranean classic.

With the prizegiving over, the last yachts left the waters of the Principality of Monaco to return to their home ports. Many of the crews maintained the enthusiasm for a spectacular week, culminating with an offshore race that many called memorable. Present yesterday at the prizegiving were all the representatives of the clubs involved (Yacht Club Sanremo, Société Nautique de Saint Tropez, Yacht Club de Monaco and Yacht Club Italiano) showing the team spirit that, in organizational and sporting terms, involved in united three different nations.
