Rolex Swan Cup Day 4 16th September
From modern day superyachts to classic designs, one-design to custom built, cutting-edge to vintage, the record-breaking 2016 Rolex Swan Cup fleet encompasses a vast cross-section of yachting heritage. The 36 yachts competing in the Sparkman & Stephens class include some of those which graced the very first Rolex Swan Cup events in the 1980s. Their enduring appeal is a tribute to the then innovativeness of their design and quality of their construction. In the hands of passionate owners they are lovingly maintained to preserve the heritage and traditions they embody, not as museum pieces but as the sea-kindly craft they were designed to be. On the water, the third day of racing was completed at the Rolex Swan Cup with competition intensifying in all six classes.
