270 vessels signed up to take part in the three events of the 63rd edition of the Giraglia Rolex Cup from 12 to 20 June. The Sanremo to St. Tropez Regatta: three days of coastal racing and the 243 nautical mile offshore regatta from St-Tropez to Genoa.

The regatta from St. Tropez to Genoa sees the highest number of participants in the Mediterranean, and the standard-bearer of the Genoa International Boat Show, the X35 OXS Medigest – Ceramiche Musa owned by Filippo de Jorio took part for the first time. She did not pick up any trophies – the winners were the two largest yachts in the fleet: Magic Carpet 3 owned by Lindsay Owen-Jones and Esimit Europa 2 owned by Igor Simčič - but sometimes winning is not everything.

The aim of the Boat Show was to bring the world of sailing closer to the September/October event, considering that during the last two editions, sailboats were one of the major sectors where the love of seafaring is expressed to the utmost.
