Geschrieben von Jennifer Hall am .

One of the sporting world's most enduring partnerships celebrates an important milestone this year: the 30th anniversary of the relationship between Rolex, Nautor's Swan luxury sailing yachts and the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, partners in the biennial Rolex Swan Cup, one of the world of sailing's signature regattas.

Taking place from 8-14 September, the 2014 Rolex Swan Cup will once again provide the dynasty of elegant Swan yachts an opportunity to engage in close racing in the challenging and scenic waters off Porto Cervo, Sardinia. Following directly on from the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, held at the same venue, this year's 18th edition will provide a typically graceful spectacle conducted in the traditional spirit of 'gentlemen sailing'.

Two Handers: Lula Belle, Rare and Dessert D'Alcyone celebrate

Geschrieben von RORC Race Reporter, Louay Habib am .

Before the 2014 Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race, a Two-Handed team had never completed the 1800-mile course. However three teams from Ireland, Britain and Germany have now accomplished that magnificent achievement. Racing Two Handed around Britain and Ireland requires all-round skill, great seamanship and tenacity. Most of the time, the Two Handed pair are alone on deck. Whilst a team mate sleeps, it can be a lonely existence on deck and the lack of sleep and the effects of exposure to the harshest of conditions is bound to take its toll on both yacht and sailor.
