Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2017 - Inspired by Sailors
The 28th edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup got underway on Monday, 4 September. The 50 yachts gathered in Porto Cervo for this annual festival of big boat sailing pay fitting tribute to the host, organizer and founder, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda was founded in May 1967 by H.H. the Aga Khan, Andrè Ardoin, Giuseppe Kerry Mentasti and Luigi Vietti as a non-profit making sporting association for fellow sailing enthusiasts and with a view to promoting related activities. 50 years on it has kept true to that vision and this years Maxi Yacht Rolex is proof positive of its success in doing so.
