Saint Tropez sailing: the Giraglia Rolex Cup

Copyright Rolex/ Carlo Borlenghi There are three events in one at the 65th Giraglia Rolex Cup, one of the oldest and most renowned offshore races in the Mediterranean: the overnight regattas beginning on 9th June from Marseille or Sanremo to Saint Tropez; an inshore series in Saint Tropez from 11th to 13th June; and the famous La Giraglia race that runs 241 nautical miles from Saint Tropez to Genoa via the island that gives the event its name on 14th June.

Around 3,000 amateur and professional crew from around the world take part in the classic sailing event, which was first conceived as a way of rebuilding the relationship between France and Italy after WWII.
