Global Swan family to meet in glamourous Porto Cervo for 21st edition of Rolex Swan Cup
Porto Cervo, 11-18 September 2022
It's the Swan family celebration of the year, a gathering of the Nautor community, a passionate festival of sail – it is the highlight of the Mediterranean racing season, The Rolex Swan Cup.
As ever the luxurious and atmospheric resort of Porto Cervo, nestled in the heart of the exclusive Costa Smeralda coastal area, is the venue for the biennial festival of all things Swan from 11 to 18 September.
With a notable entry list of 94 yachts gathering from all over the world, the Rolex Swan Cup fleet will showcase the diversity as well as the history of Nautor's Swan enduring brand.
It will encompass the full range from the brand-new Swan 120 Audrey the First to the S&S designed Swan 36 Josian, a magnificently restored example of one of the earliest Nautor's Swan models dating back to 1967.
Organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and Nautor's Swan in collaboration with longstanding partner Rolex, the regatta will feature six days of racing including a challenging coastal race for all classes. It is also the final event in the season long and hotly contested Nations League competition.
The Rolex Swan Cup also marks the culmination of the season long Nations League, the one-design circuit organised by ClubSwan Racing that takes in five Mediterranean regattas. The overall winner of the League – along with the individual winners in each of the four Swan one-design classes – will be crowned at the Rolex Crew Party.
The regatta itself gets underway with registration on Sunday 11 September, followed by a practice race for the one-design classes the following day. Full fleet racing begins on Tuesday 13 September, with the coastal race on the Thursday. The final day of racing is on Sunday 18 September.
