Loro Piana Giraglia

The first one with Loro Piana as a Title Partner

Starting tomorrow, the 71st edition of the Loro Piana Giraglia kicks off. The first one with Loro Piana as a Title Partner. One hundred fifty-nine yachts worldwide have arrived in Saint-Tropez for the first act of the regatta, which begins tomorrow with the first race.

Loro Piana Giraglia 2024 – As the harbour started to fill with long black masts, the afternoon thermal breeze also set in motion the new flags that mark and colour the new race village created to welcome all participants in the classic Loro Piana style. Meanwhile, in the gulf, many took advantage of the strong breeze for a training session and fine-tuning before the official start tomorrow morning. The Wally 100s Magic Carpet Cubed, Galateia, V, and the 93 Bullitt were among the maxis seen on the water today. Several 72s, such as North Star of London, Jethou, and Jolt, were also present, to name a few of the larger ones. Among them, also seen on the water today was the ClubSwan 80 My Song by Pigi Loro Piana and, making its racing debut, the brand-new Capricorno by Alessandro Del Bono, a JV 80 with very radical lines optimized for IRC racing. On board, Capricorno is the dream team of champions often seen on Del Bono’s boats, including Flavio Favini, Alberto Bolzan, Giovanni Cassinari, Matteo and Claudio Celon, Matteo Plazzi, and Alberto Fantini, among others.

Upon the arrival of the competitors for the first day of registrations, they were greeted by the stunning elegance of the new Loro Piana Race Village. With its luxurious lounge and the breathtaking sea of Saint-Tropez as a natural backdrop, the village is a sight to behold. A new layout, stretching along the breakwater and reaching up to the Tour de Portalet, houses a crew village that will be the hub of social life during the Loro Piana Giraglia, hosting daily awards, DJ sets, and drinks for all the sailors participating in this new edition of the Giraglia!

Tomorrow, the action on the water begins at 10:00 AM when the boats are made available to the Race Committee. The first race of the day is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM. As is the tradition, the Maxis will navigate windward-leeward courses in the bay of Pampelonne, while the rest of the fleet will be engaged in a coastal course in the bay of Saint-Tropez.
