The strong winds at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup did not allow the boats to set sail for the last two days. Day 3 was a bit different with the race starting an hour earlier to make up for lost time. The Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup was organized by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda along with the International Maxi Association. The wind was sub-10 knots before the race had started.
The routes were changed by the race committee and the boats were sent from Mortorio and Stoffi islands towards Bomb Alley before reaching the finishing point off Porto Cervo. The Maxi72s and the Wallys was asked to sail a shorter version of this course in order to accommodate a second race. But, the wind had other ideas and dropped off soon, and it became a bit like a Zadar Yacht Charter, bimbling around the Croatian coast. Hence, only one race was conducted for the Wallys and Maxi72s.
The Maxi72s race was comfortably won by Robertissima on the Roberto Tomasini Grinover and this put the Italian team in the second position in the overall score sheet. The leader of the pack was defending champion Bella Mente on the Hap Fauth. Grinover said that the team caught the right line in the first leg and the boat started to go fast.
