Rolex Swan Cup Caribbean - Freya and Cuordileone hang tight

Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. 3rd March 2017.

 

After a stunning start to proceedings in the third edition of the Rolex Swan Cup Caribbean yesterday, the fleet of Nautor's Swan yachts gathered in Virgin Gorda for the event enjoyed equally exciting conditions as they completed today's round-the-island race. A steady easterly of approximately 18 to 20 knots ushered the fleet around the course with the two competing Clubswan 50s completing the clockwise circumnavigation of Virgin Gorda in little over two and a half hours. With two races now run, both the Swan 90 Freya and Leonardo Ferragamo's Clubswan 50 hold tight to their leads at the top of the Maxi and Mini Maxi/Grand Prix divisions respectively. Racing in the event, organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in collaboration with Nautor's Swan and title sponsor Rolex, will continue through Sunday 5th March.
