The Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup concluded yesterday with Pyewacket, Alexia and Mister A topping the scoreboards
After five days of racing in ideal conditions, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2004, hosted by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, has come to an end with the USA’s Pyewacket, Argentina’s Alexia and Italy’s Mister A winning the racing, Wally and cruising divisions, respectively.
In yesterday’s last race, the same three boats won. All three divisions had a coastal course with the racing division sailing 30 miles, the Wally division sailing 26 miles and the cruising division sailing 23 miles.
“This has been a fantastic week of racing in a setting that is hard to match,” noted Roy Disney, owner of Pyewacket. “We had three factors working in our favour: excellent crew work, smart tactics and a great boat.
Today, we went out to sail clean and enjoy ourselves. Our win, combined with the warm hospitality provided by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and Rolex marks this regatta as a highlight on the world yacht racing calendar.”
