  • Rolex Capri Sailing Week
    Ice

    Following last night’s deluge, the fourth and final day of racing at the Maxi Yacht Capri Trophy, the opening event of Rolex Capri Sailing Week 2021, was held in conditions that challenged both competitors and race committee alike. A giant wind shift caused the first attempt at today’s single windward-leeward race to be abandoned. The race committee, led by Alfredo Ricci, then moved a little further out into the Bay of Naples. Starting in just 4-6 knots of wind from the south-SSE, the race finally got underway shortly after 1400 CEST.
