Rolex Capri Sailing Week

SPARKLING ACTION IN THE BAY OF NAPLES.
Clear blue skies and crystal clear water typify the sailing grounds around Capri.

The first day of the Rolex Capri Sailing Week was blessed with sublime conditions. A warm breeze of eight to twelve knots from the south to southeast was a little more than forecast.

There was spectacular racing today for all classes on windward leeward courses in the strait between Capri and Punta Campanella. The majestic island of Capri acted as a perfect back drop but also created some tactical nuances requiring forward thinking and high precision sailing.
