With the winners at the Maxi Rolex Cup in Porto Cervo this September

Maxi Rolex Cup Porto Cervo 2017

The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda at Porto Cervo in Italy can certainly look back on a busy and exciting September. Besides organising the J/70 World Championship 12-16 September, where the Gleistein-sponsored Grün Sailing Team came in mid-field in the Silver Fleet, it also hosted the prestigious Maxi Rolex Cup during the preceding week.

Gleistein was represented in the Mini Maxi RC 2 Class on the Vallicelli 80’ H2O of Ricardo de Michele: on board were Giorgio Silvestri and Stefano Leonardo of Gleistein’s premium partner in Italy – L Marine Group. In an extremely fiercely contested competition, H2O and it closest rival, the Swan 65' Shirlaf, were head-to-head coming into the last race. At the end of the day it was the H2O team that could hold the trophy for the overall win in their hands.

Head of Gleistein’s GeoYacht sales team, Dr. Heide Giese-Bothe, was on location in Porto Cervo to congratulate the entire crew on the victory and also to celebrate with Giorgio and Stefano from L Marine Group on a job well done. They’ve certainly done us proud once again!
