A phase of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2023 regattas.

A fine edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup ended in Porto Cervo, marked by days with prevailing winds from the northwest and northeast even intense, except on the last day when the program was interrupted due to too little wind.

Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup – Who Won

In Maxi A Class, David Leuschen and Chris Flowers’ WallyCento Galateia won decisively ahead of Leopard 3 and Bullitt, which made an excellent comeback after retiring on the first day.

Bella Mente, with 2 first and 3 second places is the Maxi B Class winner, 3 points ahead of Proteus, the initial class leader, and 6 ahead of Pepe Cannonball.

The Maxi C Class had an absolute ruler, Spirit of Lorina, Jean Pierre Barjon’s Botin 65 with a sequence of three firsts and a fourth place. Second place for YCCS member Riccardo de Michele’s Vallicelli 78 H2O, which also won in subclass 4. In third position is Oscar 3, Aldo Parisotto’s Mylius 65.

Among the Multihulls, making their Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup debut, YCCS member Adrian Keller’s Allegra prevails, followed on equal points by Highland Fling 18 and Convexity 2.

Y3K, YCCS member Claus-Peter Offen’s brand new Wally 101 won the Supermaxi class on debut ahead of Swan 115 Moat and Briand 108 Inoui.

J Class Svea, with 6 wins out of as many trials held, dominated the class, ahead of Velsheda and Topaz.

Flying Nikka for line honours

Performance is also growing for Roberto Lacorte’s foil monohull, in his second participation in the regatta. In stiff breeze Flying Nikka showed its potential, dominating the regattas in real time ahead of the 100-foot maxis. The Maxi Yacht Line Honors then went to Roberto Lacorte’s boat for having the best real time in the inshore races.
