Swan 601 Class Rules revised

20 June 2007

Nautor’s Swan, manufacturers of luxury performance sailing yachts of unrivalled quality, has announced that the Swan 601 Class Rules have been revised and reissued, with a new 2008 circuit also released.

The re-working of the Swan 601 Class Rules means that the Swan 601 fleet are now able to race both among themselves, and against the other yachts, outside of the Class under their One Design Class Rules with an optimised IRC rating. With effect from the Swan American Regatta 2007, the amendments made to the Swan 601 Class Rules will include:

- A stricter limitation of the number of professionals on board

- A limit to the overall sail inventory

- A clear definition of the items that can be removed from the interiors when racing

- A stricter definition of the mast and boom specifications and eventual corrector weights

The proposed Mediterranean Circuit for the Swan 601 has also been announced, with the Rolex Swan Cup as the pinnacle of the year. Dates and locations are intended to be as follows:

- Coppa Carlo Negri, Regate Pirelli, Santa Margherita Ligure, in May

- Copa del Rey, Palma de Mallorca, Spain, in August

- Rolex Swan Cup, Porto Cervo, Italy, in September

Enrico Chieffi, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Nautor’s Swan commented:

‘We are very excited about the prospects for the newly invigorated Swan 601 Class. I have every confidence that the fleet will perform well in both one design and other competitive IRC races. 2008 will be a very busy year for the Class, with a challenging circuit in some of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful locations’.
