||Rolex Capri Sailing Week / Rolex Volcano Race
May 24 - 28, 2011
Rolex Capri Sailing Week is an annual fixture on the turquoise waters of Capri, providing spirited competition early in the Mediterranean racing season. Hosted by the Yacht Club Capri, the regatta provides four days of highly competitive racing for a number of classes. The strikingly picturesque island of Capri provides a stunning backdrop to the on-the-water racing action in the Bay of Naples.
2011 marks the inaugural running of what will become an annual 400-nautical mile offshore race from Gaeta, just north of Naples, south to the volcanic island of Stromboli and then north to the finish off Capri. Open to all maxi yacht classes, and organized by the International Maxi Association in conjunction with the Comitato Vela nel Golfo di Gaeta and the Yacht Club Capri, the race forms part of Rolex Capri Sailing Week.
