Slam and Rolex Capri Sailing Week - you never forget your first date

Sails are once again returning to the coast of Naples. The Rolex Capri Sailing Week was canceled in 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic that had just started, but it is taking up where it left off, with the competitors who registered last year present for this year’s event, together with some new ones, for a record total of 147 yachts expected in the Gulf of Naples.

As the first major international event to open the season in the Mediterranean, the glamour of the RCSW is being combined with the appeal of Slam, present as a technical partner of the competition for the very first time. Slam already has links with celebrated competitions such as Rolex Giraglia, as well as being an official licensee of the Rolex Swan Cup and the Rolex Maxi Yacht Cup and a partner of several of the world’s most prestigious yacht clubs, and has now come to the sumptuous surroundings of the Gulf of Naples, where three different competitions will take place.

The event will start on 11 May with the Maxi Yacht Capri Trophy, in which the yachts will race along the coast of Naples. It will be followed, on 15 May, by the spectacular Three Gulfs Regatta, between Naples, Salerno and Gaeta, now in its 66th year. This exciting and magical event starts at night and includes vintage vessels among the participants. This regatta will also serve as an offshore test race for the ORC European Championship, the third and final competition of the RCSW, which will conclude on 20 May with the award ceremony in Capri.

In order to celebrate its début in a memorable style, Slam has chosen several of its most iconic articles and customized them to create the official clothing of the competition. 

They include the celebrated Summer Sailing Jacket 2.1, a flagship Slam product since the very beginning and one that has evolved over the decades to combine its distinctive style with state-of-the-art technical features, making it not only stylish but also a strategic, ultralight, and weather-resistant garment.

This jacket is joined by another two, the Hampton Jacket Evo 2.1 and the Inwood Vest Evo 2.1, respectively a breathable and windproof softshell with a minimalist and ergonomic design, and a high-performance and sporty vest jacket.

There are four “event” t-shirts of the competition: the Gladiator 2.1 t-Shirt in technical cotton pique, quick-drying even during the toughest performances, and the more casual and versatile men’s Lecanto 2.1 t-shirt and women’s Ellenton Evo 2.1 Capri t-shirt and, for children, the Capri Jr. t-shirt, all with prints of the “Faraglioni” (rock formations) of Capri and images of the regatta.

The accessories also include the Promo Evolution Capri Cap, a classic cotton canvas baseball cap with a distinctive windproof cord and clip designed for sailing enthusiasts. Last but not least, there is the compact but spacious water-repellent WR Bag A238.
Because now, with this new partnership, Slam’s extensive participation in regattas throughout the world becomes even greater.
