Leading up to Capri Rolex Sailing Week, Capri Classica took placein Capri from 8th to 12th May. The event was the first round of the Schooner Cup series created by the recently formed International Schooner Association. The second and third editions will be held during Monaco Classic Week on 11-15 September and also during Les Voiles de Saint Tropez from 26 September to 6 October.

Four teams participated in this regatta: Mariette of 1915, Naema, Orianda and Puritan. One of the busiest days of the race was the second day, when a cold front caused wind gusts of over 25 knots. It was then that photographers Gianfranco Forza and the Blue Passion Photo team kept an eye on the boats.
