2019 – 2023 Nautor’s Swan Racing Calendar

Nautor’s Swan Racing Calendar

After a stunning Rolex Swan Cup 2018, last September, Nautor’s Swan is now looking ahead, planning a thrilling racing season for next years. There are plenty of new, exciting events being organized for 2019 among which a new approach in Northern Europe and the Americas. 

In Northern Europe, the SWAN EUROPEAN REGATTA 2019 has been confirmed and the event will take place in the extraordinary setting of Cowes from July 7th to 12th - Isle of Wight, under the organization of the Royal Yacht Squadron.

To satisfy the wider Northern European Swan community, we are delighted to confirm too that the Swan European Regatta has a brand new format, now to be held yearly (instead of biennially) and itinerant, i.e. moving in 2020 to Sweden, in 2021 to Finland, in 2022 to Denmark and in 2023 to Germany.  Each time hosted by the very best yacht clubs in each country to ensure the highest level of racing and lovely social settings.

In America, after a few years of absence, we will organize a new SWAN AMERICAN REGATTA. It will be held in Newport (RI) on June 13-16, 2019 with the professional and inimitable support of the NYYC.
We regret to inform you that, due to major damage at the YCCS Virgin Gorda facilities, after Hurricane Irma, we had no choice but to freeze the next edition of the ROLEX SWAN CUP CARIBBEAN. Therefore: no Caribbean event in 2019.

ROLEX GIRAGLIA                             June 9-15
