VIDEO: Power and Prowness

The 2022 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup on September 4-10 offers a combination of windward/leeward racing and coastal courses in north-east Sardinia’s Maddalena Archipelago. The 32nd edition has gathered an impressive and diverse fleet of 50 powerful yachts all over 60 feet in length.

From the traditional designs of the J Class through the all-carbon Mini Maxi and Maxi Racers, the thunderous Supermaxis to the ultimate innovation of the first ever foiling Maxi, the 2022 fleet is a true demonstration of what makes large yacht racing so compelling.

This video captures the first two days of racing which saw classes take on a mix of coastal racing within the Maddalena Archipelago and windward/leeward courses.
