Registrations for the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2023, an internationally renowned sailing event organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda with the support of title sponsor Rolex and in collaboration with the International Maxi Association (IMA), are now open. The Notice of Race has been published online and is available here.

The 33rd edition of the event is scheduled to take place from 3rd to 9th September 2023, and will be open to boats with a minimum length of 18.29 metres. Multihull yachts will also be able to take part in the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup for the first time, in light of the growing interest in this type of yacht.

Racing will get under way on 4th September and conclude on the 9th, for a total of five days of sailing that will see the participants take on courses laid out between the islands of the La Maddalena archipelago. The 2022 edition of the event was particularly successful, not only due the number of yachts taking part, which reached 50, but above all thanks to the elevated standard of the competitors in terms of quality, innovation, history, design and performance. This year's edition once again promises to gather a high-level fleet in Porto Cervo, uniting the very best in sailing yacht design and construction with professional sailors of international fame.

Registrations for the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2023 will remain open until 30th July. For further details please consult the Notice of Race, or to complete or download the registration form click here.
