LateRooms.com - Enjoy the Rolex Capri Sailing Week during a Naples stay

May 05, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
The Mediterranean yachting season will get underway in style on Tuesday May 24th, when the 2011 Rolex Capri Sailing Week begins.

Known for bringing an impressive fleet of boats to the famous waters of the Bay of Naples, the event celebrates its seventh anniversary this year.

However, a significant addition has been made to the programme for the latest edition of the regatta - the inaugural Rolex Volcano Race.

This 400-mile offshore challenge is open to all maxi yachts upwards of 18 metres and will attract a range of competitors from Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and the UK.

As usual, there will also be four days of inshore competition for yachts in a variety of classes - Swans, Oysters, Mylius, Comets and X-41s.

Holidaymakers spending time in Naples may like to visit Capri, a popular island resort that can be reached from the mainland by ferry and hydrofoil, to see the participating yachts sailing past.

Famed for its natural beauty and mild climate, Capri was a favourite leisure spot for many Roman emperors.

Yacht enthusiasts will find a wide variety of Naples hotels at LateRooms.com, which recommends the Grand Hotel Parkers Naples.
