In confirming the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, taking place from 30 August to 4 September, and the Rolex Swan Cup, from 6 to 13 September 2020 – among the first major sailing events in the Mediterranean - the YCCS has necessarily had to restructure many aspects of the regattas as a result of restrictions to combat Covid-19, and in order to ensure maximum safety for all.
These include access to the press room and availability of press/photo boats.
In order to comply with the distancing measures set out in the anti Covid-19 regulations, the press room will be reserved exclusively for operational staff present on site and will remain closed to external users. Furthermore, it will not be possible to organise shared press boats as in previous editions. We are aware of the inconvenience that these necessities entail, and would ask anyone interested in following the races to contact the YCCS Press Office as soon as possible in order to verify requirements and find, where possible, the best practical solution in each case.
The YCCS Press Office will be pleased to assist anyone who wishes to follow the event remotely and/or requires general information, official documents, organisational details, photos, videos, etc.
Interested parties will nevertheless be free to make autonomous arrangements to follow the event at sea, in accordance with the regulations set out by the La Maddalena Harbour Master's Office and in the Sailing Instructions for the two events.
