The 33rd edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup has served up spectacular and challenging sailing conditions and provided the platform for elite crews to demonstrate their skill and appetite for first-class competition.

After three days of racing the leaders of the six classes are: Galateia (Maxi A), Proteus and Bella Mente (Maxi B), Spirit of Lorina (Maxi C), Y3K (Supermaxi), Allegra (Maxi multihull) and Svea (J Class).

For nearly 40 years, Rolex has enjoyed a close and privileged partnership with the regatta, organized by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS), in conjunction with the International Maxi Association. The event is considered the perfect sailing package - combining excellent race management, an enviable nautical environment and uniting a fleet comprised of some of the world's most impressive maxi yachts.

Following today's lay day, two days of racing remain concluding on Saturday, 9 September.
