American yacht Wizard becomes part of Fastnet legend with 2019 victory
The 48th edition of the Rolex Fastnet Race gathered a record-breaking international fleet of 388 yachts. Competitors battled a broad range of weather and sea conditions over the famously challenging 605 nautical mile course across the English Channel and Celtic Sea, where the professional and Corinthian crews were required to display resilience, teamwork and supreme sailing skill. American yacht Wizard won the 2019 Fastnet Challenge Cup to become part of the legend of this near century-old ocean classic, which Rolex has sponsored since 2001 as part of its enduring relationship with yachting that dates back more than six decades. Rolex has always associated with activities driven by passion, excellence, precision and team spirit. It naturally gravitated towards the elite world of yachting six decades ago and today supports the most prestigious clubs, races and regattas. The brand is Title Sponsor of 15 major international events from leading offshore races, such as the annual Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race and the biennial Rolex Fastnet Race, to grand prix competition at the Rolex TP52 World Championship and spectacular gatherings at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and the Rolex Swan Cup. It also supports the exciting new SailGP series, where national teams race in supercharged F50 catamarans on some of the worlds most famous harbours. Rolexs partnerships with the likes of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, Royal Malta Yacht Club, Yacht Club Italiano, New York Yacht Club and Royal Yacht Squadron are the foundation of its enduring relationship with this dynamic sport.
