Registration for the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2024, an event organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in collaboration with the International Maxi Association (IMA) and with the support of historic partner Rolex, officially opens today.

The Notice of Race is available online here.

This year marks the 34th edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, an internationally renowned event which each year gathers a fleet of around 50 maxi yachts in Porto Cervo. The boats represent the cream of technology, history, design and performance, and are crewed by acclaimed professional sailors.

The event opens on 8th September with the Welcome Cocktail on the panoramic terrace of the YCCS, while racing gets under way the following day and runs through 14th September. Over the course of the five days the fleet will have the opportunity to compete against the unique background of the La Maddalena Archipelago, getting to grips once again with the renowned channel between La Maddalena and the Sardinian coastline known as "Bomb Alley".

Registration for the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup is open until 30th July 2024. The Notice of Race is available online here, together with the Entry Form.
