Leading their respective standings after Day 2:
Maxi: Plis Play (ESP), Mini Maxi: Flow (CAY), Sparkman & Stephens: Mascalzone Latino (ITA), Grand Prix: Crilia (GER), ClubSwan 36: G-Spot (MON), ClubSwan 42: Selene Alifax (NED), ClubSwan 50: Balthasar (BEL), Swan 45: Blue Sky (ITA)

Over ninety yachts are registered for the 2022 Rolex Swan Cup. First held in 1980 and celebrating its 21st edition this year, the Rolex Swan Cup unites three longstanding partners in Rolex, Nautor Swan and event hosts, Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. This year marks the first Rolex Swan Cup since 2018.

Racing is scheduled on all four remaining days. Tomorrow all classes will engage in the Islands Long Race. Competition concludes on Sunday 18 September.
