2010 Rolex Farr 40 World Championship

Over the years, the Rolex Farr 40 World Championship has earned a fine name and has registered its place among the most adventurous and highly prestigious annual sailing events across the globe. The name of the grand regatta completely justifies its very essence. The competition registers a huge participation from about 500 athletes sailing in yachts with an enormous size of 40-foot. Originally, Farr 40 was a sailing boat about 40-foot in size which was designed by Farr Yacht Design. Managed and controlled by the Stagg Yachts, the event is driven by one main unique rule according to which the owner of the boat should be an amateur and should helm the sailboat as per the advice and support of four talented and qualified sailors who will be there just to motivate the owner and keep up the spirit of the team.

The Rolex Farr 40 World Championship is considered one of the most competitive and challenging regattas globally. The sailing event follows a certain pattern while choosing the venue which revolves around the regional fleets of Europe, Australia, United States and Caribbean. The yacht club is located well in the middle of the Casa de Campo Marina and has a sailing school to its name which is equipped with four J24 boats and is supported by highly qualified teachers from Italy’s Yacht Club- Costa Smeralda which has its base in Porto Cervo Sardinia.

The event is backed by the Rolex which with its constant support aims at bringing out the best in sailors. Rolex has been lending its unparallel support to many sailing events including Farr 40 Pre-Worlds, the Capri Sailing Week and the Farr 40 World Championship.

Sarah Polley And Rolex Lady Datejust; The Weight Of Time

Sarah Polley

Time imposes its weight on those who have not acquired the talent to streamline it and suit their ways and more often than not the weight of time bears so heavily on some that they are bogged down by the demands it can make on their life. The Rolex house of watches stems from the belief that if they are in the business of manufacturing beholders of time their first priority is to understand that time is only conducive for those who have developed a skill to appreciate and respect it. Rolex lends this factor of integrity to the way it constructs its watches and the watches that turn out from the Rolex stable are exceptional because Rolex understands time like no other watch maker does.

Born in Ontario Sarah Polly started her acting career with the Disney produced Road to Avonlea and her character of Sarah Stanley was successful to the degree that it defined her for the length of time that she was on the show. She won the Gemini Award for her remarkable performance in Straight Up and this led to casting in The Law of Enclosures. She also received the Genie Award for an interesting act in My Life Without Me. She was also cast in the lead for The Secret Life of Words. The much coveted Academy Award nomination came with her stirring screenplay for Away From Her. She won the director’s award at the Genie Awards, the first time for a woman to do so. The actress cum director is also an advocate against the Free Trade Areas of the Americas proposal and has served as a member of David Miller’s transition advisory team.

Rolex Lady Datejust

The Rolex Datejust is a watch that is superlative in its performance because it incorporates the Oyster Perpetual characteristic in it. It was also the first watch in the history of wristwatches that features a date display and the watch borrows its name from the same mechanism. The other specialty of the watch is the fact that it has a Cyclops magnifying lens that allows the watch wearer to view the time with better precision. The date calendar of the Rolex Lady Datejust and the Cyclops Magnifier combine to form a pact that makes the watch unparalleled in the field of watches. The movement of the watch is self wound and lends a degree of individuality to the Rolex Lady Datejust. The Rolex Lady Datejust is 36mm sized and is constructed in a variety of combinations. The most popular of these is the steel and yellow gold pair because this combination is extremely classy in its appearance. The fluted bezel of the watch adds just the right degree of edge to the Rolex Lady Datejust and the white dial perfectly complements the set to take the look of the watch to a whole new level of performativity. The Rolex Lady Datejust has a sapphire crystal in its mechanism that calls for the uniqueness in the watch and combined with it being waterproof to 100 meters the watch spells invincibility. The bracelet of the Rolex Lady Datejust is an Oyster featuring an Oysterclasp and the Easylink is the other feature of the watch that augments the watch’s act. The Rolex Lady Datejust like Sarah Polly truly understands the weight of time and hence it fine tunes its performances and makes it fall in place with the constant changes of a second.

Sarah Chalke And Rolex Cellini Cellissima; Cinderellas Of Time

Sarah Chalke

The Cinderella story had its quintessential fairy godmother granting the damsel in distress a chance of a lifetime that could take her existence away from cinders and into the prince’s arms but the element that added the tense edge to the story was the factor of time and the role it played in Cinderella’s life. Had the clock not struck twelve and had Cinderella not left the party in a hurry leaving her slipper behind the world would perhaps had been shaped differently. The Cinderella story is so inspiring because it is a tale of possibilities, of how life does not treat one in the same way on two successive days. Rolex too tries to bring in this novelty factor in the way it manufactures its watches for its clientele that maybe exclusive but is ever growing. Rolex knows that time is ever changing and hence it always tries to build itself to a level of excellence reaching which is easy but maintaining that position is something that only Rolex with its expertise and its penchant for innovation can live up to. Sarah Chalke has had a life that may not have been as distressing as Cinderella’s but where the Cinderella element comes into her life is in the way Sarah has always held hope for life, she is an eternal optimist and believes that a good life is one that is spent loving yourself and knowing that life always has something good in store for you despite the momentary darkness that it may have delved you in.

The actress is a polyglot being able to speak French, German and English most fluently and she has occasioned her acting with the same variety. She appeared in musical theater productions and went on to do roles in serials like Scrubs, Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy, How I Met Your Mother and The O.C. The actress is also an activist for prevention against breast cancer and has also featured on Why I Wore Lipstick To My Mastectomy a short film that creates awareness about the disease.

Rolex Cellini Cellissima

Cellini collection was launched with an intention to serve the premium watch market a force that was not only unmatchable but most accurate in terms of both design and performance. The Rolex Cellini Cellissima was constructed to be a watch that could not only dazzle with its outer appearance but also backed it up with an adept mechanism running the watch. Rolex Cellini Cellissima is part of the 18ct white gold collection and also features a unique tonneau shaped bezel. For those who like their watch to serve as an extension of their style, Rolex Cellini Cellissima offers a round shaped bezel. The watch is beautifully emblazoned with diamond chips and they are so subtly inculcated into the watch that they don’t appear to the eye on a jarring note. The Rolex Cellini Cellissima features an additional diamond set component that sprawls over the watch case, the bracelet and the clasp of the watch. The superior design is the outcome of years of building on the concept that a watch which is good looking can also have a beautifully streamlined mechanism running it from under.
