Rolex Giraglia 2019 15 June One to remember
An enthralling edition of the Rolex Giraglia concluded on Saturday 15 June with the final prizegiving hosted by the Yacht Club de Monaco. Contested by 243 international yachts the 2019 Rolex Giraglia offshore race proved to be one of the fastest in recent memory with all finishers arriving in under 40 hours. Recipients of Rolex timepieces were Alex Schaerers Maxi 72 Caol Ila R as the overall winner on corrected time and George Davids 88-ft maxi Rambler having secured line honours. As crews arrived at the resplendent Yacht Club de Monaco, it provided an opportunity to reflect on the races enduring and unique appeal. Rolex, a supporter of yachting since the 1950s, has been a close and committed partner of the event since 1998.
