Nice looking Corum Admiral’s Cup Seafender 48 Chrono, created for the Bol d’Or regatta. The pyramid-patterned dial is what caught my eye. Literally translated, Bol d’Or means “Golden Bowl” i.e. trophy cup — the Regatta has been held in Switzerland annually since 1939, and for the past two years Corum has been a sponsor of the event. This is one of many sailing events that Corum sponsors — the brand’s ties to the maritime world, sailing in particular, are well established.

Did You Know?
The Bol d’Or Marabaud
The route is designed to be as simple as possible: Geneva to Le Bouveret bac to Geneva. There is only one buoy marker, at the mid-way point (Le Bouveret).
The winner in real time of the Geneva -Le Bouveret -Geneva route wins the Bol d’Or, which is put up for grabs each year – unless it is won three times in five years by the same owner. Only three boats have achieved the latter feat in over 70 editions: Marie-José II belonging to Horace Julliard (1961, 1962 and 1963), Altaïr IX owned by Philippe Stern (1980, 1982 and 1984) and Ernesto
Bertarelli’s Alinghi (1997, 2000 and 2001).
The Bol de Vermeil rewards the first monohull to cross the finishing line. As with the Bol d’Or, it must be won three times in five years in order to be entitled to keep it.
