Second oldest in the Italian yachting calendar to the Rolex Giraglia, this 155 mile offshore race has been incorporated into Rolex Capri Sailing Week since 2017, forming a prologue and feeder race to the inshore races that follow for the maxi boats.  Organised by the CRV Italia, the course takes the boats northwest from Naples, around the island of Ponza before returning southeast, where the boats can leave Capri to port or starboard before rounding the Li Galli islands off the Amalfi coast, then returning clockwise around the south side of Capri to the finish off Marina Grande.  Regata dei Tre Golfi also forms the second event in the International Maxi Association’s Mediterranean Maxi Offshore Challenge (MMOC) which began with last October’s Rolex Middle Sea Race.
