Circolo Remo Vela Italia has announced that registration is open today for Tre Golfi Sailing Week, sponsored by Rolex, and held over 14-21 May 2022. This event will include racing for the 2022 ORC Mediterranean Championship, the 67th edition of the Regata dei Tre Golfi, and the 2022 Maxi European Championship.

The racing venue for this event is in the Bay of Naples between Sorrento and Capri, with shoreside activities being based in Sorrento, a beautiful village and its surroundings known worldwide for its scenery and attractions, with plenty of hotels and accommodation alternatives available for all budgets. The area is easily connected to Naples by road and ferries, thus rendering logistics much easier than being based on an island.

The 2022 ORC Mediterranean Championship will comprise one long-distance race on the same course of the 150-mile Regata dei Tre Golfi (starting on Saturday 14 May) and, from Thursday 19 to Saturday 21 May, up to five windward-leeward races on the usual courses in the waters between Sorrento and Capri.

Yachts will be hosted in one of the three marinas in the city at Piano di Sorrento, providing all services to yachts and where the race village will be located. Social events will be open to participants in both the ORC series and the Maxi Europeans.

"The ORC Mediterranean Championship was established a year ago and subsequently abandoned," said CRV Italia Vice President Maurizio Pavesi. "Re-establishing such a prestigious trophy is a great honor to us and we at CRV Italia are confident the event will be attractive to all racers, including participants who are also in training before the ORC World Championship hosted in Porto Cervo in June."
