ROLEX unveils an exciting CAPRI WEEK at the end of this month

The Rolex Capri 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, the Rolex Volcano Race forms part of Rolex Capri Sailing Week. From May 24 to 28.

The Rolex Capri Week has been one of the major projects initiated Gian Riccardo Marini, former CEO of Rolex Italy and since last week, ROLEX Group CEO Worldwide.
