The Rolex Capri Sailing Week regatta will take place near the Italian island of Capri, in the bays of Naples, Salerno, and Gaeta. Every year, yachtsmen with a different level of training participate in the regatta, including beginners in more experienced crews.
This year's event also includes the Offshore Sailing European Championship, the dei Tre Golfi regatta as part of the European Championship, the Maxi Yacht Capri Cup regatta, and the Mylius Cup race.
In Naples, the dei Tre Golfi regatta starts at midnight, and a gala dinner will be held on the terrace of the Circolo Remo e Vela Italia Yacht Club.
In Capri, there will be many events for the yacht owners and the crews. There will be an impressive award ceremony at Piazzetta Square, after which the last series of races will take place.
The maximum number of yachts participating in the regatta is 70 in the European Championship for Offshore Racing, and 25 in the race for the Maxi Yacht Capri Cup. So, hurry up to take your place in one of the crews if you want to participate in some of the most prestigious competitions in Europe.
The RCSW will start in Capri island on Monday, May 10th, with the Maxi Yacht Capri Trophy races. The Regatta continues with the "Tre Golfi" offshore race in Naples, Salerno, and Gaeta gulfs. On Thursday, May 20th, it ends with the ORC European Championship price-giving in the Capri's famous "Piazzetta."
The regatta will be held in two stages. Stage 1 is an offshore race from Naples to Capri. Stage 2 are day races near the island of Capri. You will have the opportunity to see the city at the foot of Vesuvius - Naples, and get to know the Italian island of Capri.
Yes, of course. There will be an experienced skipper and team members on the yacht. They will give you a role and teach you everything you need to know to be a useful team member and feel comfortable.
Yes, all team members will definitely try themselves in different roles to better understand each other. Standing at the helm is an integral part of training for beginners as well as setting sails, and helping the team during moorings.
As a rule, participants in the regatta live on the yacht. The boat has everything you need for a comfortable stay: nice beds, a kitchen, a shower with toilet. If you do not want to live on a yacht, then you can arrange to stay at the hotel onshore.
The crew decides altogether what kind of food they prefer to eat and makes necessary purchases. Simple dishes can be cooked, usually taking turns. Some regattas offer daily meals and intensive evening program for all crews.
We can make an invitation for a visa, but you need to apply for a visa by yourself.
Most people tolerate some seasickness easily. If you feel that you are starting to feel sick, it is best to get at the steering wheel or tune the sails. Get yourself busy, show your body that you don’t have time to get sick, you have to fight for victory in the race. There are also many quite effective medicines from sickness. If you start taking them in advance, then the probability of seasickness is almost zero.
Before each trip, we organize an online meeting where participants get to know each other and the captain. The captain will answer all your questions. The crew will have a group chat so you can get to know each other before the start of the regatta. Then you will meet in the marina.
The main rule is to dress comfortably and according to the weather. Clothing: • windbreaker and pants or shorts; • shirt/jacket with UV protection (thermal underwear and fleece); • adjustable hat/cap; • gloves. We recommend to purchase a long-sleeved jacket with UV protection in order to protect yourself from the sun and strong wind. Yachting shoes should be: • light, with non-slip white outsole; • with the fixed heel; • with a tightly closed nose. During the sailing without shoes, you can fall or injure your fingers and feet on the deck. There are many protruding parts on the boat that are easy to catch. Unfortunately, even experienced sailors are not protected from unpleasant injuries when they ignore this simple rule.
