Las grandes esloras se citan en Cerdeña en la Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup

Las razones que explican la longevidad y el éxito de la Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup son varias: La calidad de la competición es siempre de primer nivel y la organización responde indefectiblemente a sus altas exigencias; los recorridos ofrecen una inigualable combinación de dificultad y belleza en un entorno plagado de “minas” en forma de salientes rocosos que suponen todo un desafío para las tripulaciones; el evento ejerce tradicionalmente de lugar de ensayo y exhibición de los últimos diseños de monocascos y de la más avanzada tecnología del sector; y sus organizadores mantienen una excelente relación con un patrocinador principal, Rolex, que apoya el evento desde 1985, al Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS) desde inicios de la década de 1980 y al mundo de la vela desde hace más de 60 años. Buen conocedor del evento gracias a sus más de 30 años de competición en aguas de Porto Cervo, el embajador Rolex Paul Cayard reconoce estas cualidades: “La Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup es un gran ejemplo de cómo un patrocinador y un club pueden trabajar juntos, crear una relación duradera y avanzar de la mano evolucionando para mantenerse en lo más alto. Como regatistas, nos encanta venir a competir: el viento, el mar, el espectacular escenario de la costa sarda y la capacidad organizativa del Yacht Club Costa Smeralda son inigualables. La combinación de estos factores la convierten en una cita indispensable para los mejores regatistas del mundo. Es el mejor evento de grandes esloras del circuito”. Otro experto competidor de la Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup el cuatro veces campeón olímpico británico y embajador Rolex Sir Ben Ainslie destaca los valores que comparte el evento con su patrocinador principal. “Precisión y excelencia son esenciales para el rendimiento en vela desde un punto de vista deportivo, más aún en la Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup. Existe una relación clara y directa con los ideales que defiende Rolex”. Los márgenes entre éxito y fracaso en el agua son muy pequeños; cualquier mínimo error es aprovechado por los rivales para superarte. La excelencia no es sólo una necesidad, es una exigencia. UNA FLOTA EXCEPCIONAL El término maxi define a monocascos de más de 18,29 metros de eslora (60 pies), y ese es el mínimo exigido para engrosar la parrilla de salida. En la Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, la flota se divide en diferentes categorías en función de sus prestaciones y esloras. El objetivo para los armadores de estos colosos a vela es imponerse en su clase frente a tripulaciones tan preparadas y competitivas como las suyas; ser el mejor entre iguales. Pese a verse reducido en número respecto a ediciones anteriores por la excepcional situación mundial, el listado provisional de inscritos avanza una apasionante batalla naval en aguas de la Costa Esmeralda. Los pantalanes del YCCS acogerán a una excelente muestra del selecto universo maxi, con barcos de esloras comprendidas entre los 18,29 metros de unidades como el Dehler 60 Blue Oyster o el PD60 Spectre, y los 43,30 metros del Baltic 142 Canova, el más grande de esta edición. El programa de competición de la Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2020 constará de cinco jornadas de regatas entre el lunes, 31 de agosto, y el viernes, 4 de septiembre. El evento proporcionará un inmejorable entorno para que armadores y regatistas puedan volver a conectar con su pasión por la competición en el agua, siempre con la seguridad y profesionalidad que hacen del YCCS uno de los mejores clubes organizadores del mundo.
