The Rolex Giraglia, meanwhile, is currently underway and sees several YCCS members taking part in their respective divisions. In the IRC 0 category are: Dario Ferrari on Cannonball, Alex Schaerer with Caol Ila, Gibian owned by Armando Grandi, Marietta Strasoldo with Lunz Am Meer and Magic Carpet 3, owned by Sir Lindsay Owen-Jones, fresh from victory in the Performance class at the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta.
