Dear Subscriber,

The European flagged maxi Esimit Europa 2 continues her winning streak into her jubilee racing season by taking line honours already at three offshore races in the first part of this year’s racing season in May and June: the Volcano Race, the Sanremo – St. Tropez Race and the Giraglia Rolex Cup Race.

“A beautiful season opener” as skipper of Esimit Europa 2 Jochen Schümann described it, the Volcano Race remains one of the most scenic offshore races in the Mediterranean  and this year marked the fifth running of the race. This event aims to grow as one of the best long distance races in the yachting calendar. The fleet set sail on this offshore race covering some 400 nautical miles across the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Aeolian Islands with its famous volcanic archipelago, with starts and finishes in the Italian city of Gaeta, located about half-way between Rome and Naples. Esimit Europa 2 was the first yacht to cross the finish line with an elapsed time of 1 day, 21 hours and 2 minutes. This was already the second time she has taken part in this spectacular race in which she took the line honours also in last year’s edition. Read more





The next race on the schedule was the roughly 60-nautical-mile-long offshore race between Sanremo in Italy and St. Tropez in France, organised to enhance the spirit of friendship between the neighbouring states, Italy and France, and to develop cooperation and co-organisation of yachts clubs on both sides. The special charm of this race is a spectacular start at the stroke of midnight from Sanremo, which makes it even more exciting. With an impressive time of 4 hours 51 minutes Esimit Europa 2 earned her 37th consecutive line honours win at the Sanremo – St. Tropez Race. Read more



Just before embarking on the offshore race of the Giraglia Rolex Cup, Esimit Europa 2 sailed in the inshore races in front of enchanting port of Saint Tropez in a fleet of 22 yachts in her group.Read more





Esimit Europa 2 earned already her 5th line honours victory at the Giraglia Rolex Cup and her 38th consecutive line honours victory since her christening in 2010 with an elapsed time of 29 hours 11 minutes and 58 seconds of sailing in moderate to light and very light wind conditions. She was the first to complete the 243-nautical-mile course of one of the most renowned offshore races in the Mediterranean, setting off from St. Tropez, sailing around the rocky Giraglia Island and returning back to Genoa.
