Rolex Swan Cup
Lord Laidlaw’s brand new Swan 115, Highland Fling 15, made her debut regatta appearance at the Rolex Maxis. Although missing the first day’s racing, she went on to show real promise by posting podium positions every day. For the five Swans competing, the Maxi Worlds provided the chance to tune up for the 19th edition of the Rolex Swan Cup being held in the same location the following week. This 50th anniversary event attracted a record 125 yachts.
