Swan events to bring racers and cruisers to the Med
Swan says it is proud to be assembling a fleet to demonstrate its full breadth of design at a private viewing event at the Marina di Scarlino on the Tuscan coast. The Swan Worldwide Previews will take place from 22-30 May, offering future owners a chance to acquaint themselves with the new bluewater Swan 58, plus the ‘shadow’, Swan’s first motor yacht.
“The beautiful and exciting world of Nautor’s Swan is opening its doors, starting the season with this very important event for us,” says Giovanni Pomati, Nautor Group CEO.
“This is the second edition of an experience allowing our guests to live our brand through 360 degrees. In these nine days, there is the opportunity to come and visit the latest models in our range with the brand-new Swan 58 and Nautor’s unique interpretation of a motoryacht, the Swan Shadow. Not only that, but visitors can experience the adrenaline of a one-design regatta and be pampered by the services we are happy to offer from the Nautor’s Swan Global Service, Nautor’s Swan Brokerage and Charter in the beautiful resort of Marina di Scarlino, with its berthing and accommodation.”
The Nation’s League racing circuit will also get under way in late May, when ClubSwan sailors return to the Mediterranean for the Swan Tuscany Challenge, organised by the Yacht Club Isole di Toscana. Running from 25-29 May, it is the first of four one-design regattas organised this year by Nautor’s Swan exclusively for the One Design classes.
“This second edition of the Tuscany Challenge is opening a season full of events for Nautor’s. Racing is part of our DNA and we work very hard and with great passion to create opportunities to enjoy the sport of sailing at its best with a very positive and energetic vibe,” says Enrico Chieffi, Nautor Group vice president.
Competition will take place over 11 individual races for each class, following a classic windward-leeward course of about an hour. All the action unfolds in the sheltered waters off the Tuscan coast at Scarlino, renowned for its beautiful backdrop and steady sea breezes.
Swan’s racing programme was curtailed last year, due to Covid, but organisers say there will be no race village and any social events will be modest and completely in line with the Italian government regulations.
