Rolex Capri Sailing Week 2021

The Rolex Capri Sailing Week 2021 enriched once again the Gulf of Naples from Monday 10 May to end on the 20th of May with the prize-giving ceremony in Capri, this year at the race village to meet the COVID-19 emergency security protocol. 

The schedule for the RCSW 2021 was slightly longer than in previous years. 
Given the high number of entries, the Organizing Authority decided not to overlap the Maxi Yacht Capri Trophy and the ORC European Championship in order to allow a greater number of yachts to access Capri Marina.
