VIDEO: Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup


 
Dockside tour showing some of the world's largest and most impressive sailing boats
A stroll around the dock by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda during the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup provides some insight into some of the world's most impressive sailing hardware from the Mini Maxi race boats to the giant Wallys and Perini Navis (who held their regatta just before the Maxis) plus what must be the world's largest RIB Get Shorty. Please note there are at least a couple of factual inaccuracies in this - principally Danilo Salsi's DSK Pioneer Investments is the new Swan 90 (not a 70) and (what were we thinking?) Jethou is built by Green Marine and not Goetz. Make yourself a brew, sit back and watch this video here (18mins 50 seconds, 85MB) NB: This video is formatted to play in Windows Media Player and is LARGE in size - therefore only suitable for those with a suitably fast broadband connection. They should play out as they download. Mac users can now view .wmv files by downloading a suitable add on to Quicktime - for example we use Flip4Mac which works a treat. The only noticable difference is that while the clip will play out while downloading on a PC in Internet Explorer, on a Mac it must download first.
