ROLEX SYDNEY HOBART YACHT RACE

628 sleepless miles. The crew have no time for rest. The end of each day heralds the same mantra: just make it through the night unscathed. Iron-willed, and hardened by wind and waves, they battle the black, undulating expanse. These men were made for the sea.

MAXI YACHT ROLEX CUP

Sailing has an elegance that difficult, harsh conditions cannot obscure. Along the Sardinian coastline, commanding yachts cut through the Mediterranean with agility and apparent ease. But the tranquil scene belies this event, for it's a competition where the crews are out to win.

ROLEX SWAN CUP

Rolex and yachting

Every two years, the Rolex Swan Cup transforms the water off the coast of Sardinia into a sea of competitive racing. The world's top sailors gather to race over 100 of the most beautiful yachts in the world. And when the wind begins to blow, they get even more beautiful by the moment.

ROLEX FASTNET RACE

Rolex and yachting

High winds, soaking spray, the percussive thump of a hull carving through rough seas. These are the things that get a sailor's adrenaline going, but the Celtic Sea and its temperamental weather patterns offer far more. With the Fastnet Rock a turning point, there's still another 200 miles to the finish of the Rolex Fastnet Race. Held every two years, it's one of the ultimate tests of a sailor's responsiveness, endurance, technical skills and nerve. It's why the race is a pilgrimage for so many, and why every victory is a legend in the making.

The Rolex Farr® 40 Worlds represent the pinnacle of one-design yacht racing, where victory is purely down to the skill of the sailors. In a championship where yacht owners must skipper their own craft, and the rules require that the boats and total weight be equal, each crew must work together perfectly, ready to exploit the slightest opportunity the wind and sea provide. Winning can hinge on a mere split second – something the ocean can give or take away in an instant.
