More than 40 superboats will take part in the 26th edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in Porto Cervo (Sept. 6 to 12, organized by the YC Costa Smeralda), one of the most important international sailing competitions, where you can admire sleek hulls and the latest in technology. There will be Supermaxi, Wally and the event will be valid as the Maxi 72 world championship (the former Mini Maxi).

Great anticipation for the guest of honor, Comanche, Jim Clark’s 100-footer captained by Ken Read fresh from winning the Fastnet royalty and the 24-hour course record (618.01 miles): it will be tough to beat. Also for the other 100-footers, Lindsay Owen-Jones’ Wally Magic Carpet Cubed (last year’s winner) and Claus Peter Offen’s Y3K, winner of three Maxi Yacht Rolex Cups. Leonardo Ferragamo’s new Swan 115S Solleone and the 218.8-foot (66.7 m) megayacht Hetairos are also among the “very large.”

There will be 13 Wallys competing, and 6 will be Mini Maxis competing in the World Championship instead: Dieter Schon’s Momo, Sir Peter Ogden’s Jethou, Roberto Tomasini Grinover’s Robertissima III, Caol Ila R (Ocean Racing IV), George Sakellaris’ Proteus and Hap Fauth’s Bella Mente. The first of the five-day regatta will be Monday, 7.
