29th edition ends on a high

Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup & Rolex Maxi 72 Class World Championship – Porto Cervo

2-8 September

 

Organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in collaboration with the International Maxi Association, this remains a very popular event as evidenced by the 41 boats competing in the 29th edition. Of note, an excellent win by Jukka Kaukonen from the Yacht Club de Monaco in the Wally class on Lyra. In the Mini Maxi 1 category, the YCM’s Benoit de Froidmont (Wallyno) clinched 3rd after six races. In the other Mini Maxi fleet, Adalberto Miani (Botta Dritta) came 4th just one point adrift of a podium finish.
