The YCCS organises international sailing regattas, including world championships, for a wide range of boats and has specific experience with superyachts and maxi yachts. Among the prestigious classes that frequently race in Costa Smeralda are the J Class, Wally Class, TP52, RC44, Farr 40, Melges 32, Melges 40, J/70 and Maxi 72 classes. The YCCS also organises regattas in collaboration with top shipyards such as Nautor’s Swan, Perini Navi and Southern Wind.
The 2019 season sees more than 10 regattas on the calendar including the Star World Championship and the 12th edition of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta. September will host the 30th edition of the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, and the final leg of the 52 Super Series circuit where Azzurra, the TP52 flying the YCCS burgee, will represent the Club.
In addition to a busy sporting calendar, the YCCS also promotes activities relating to the YCCS Sailing School and the One Ocean Foundation, created in March 2018 from an environmental sustainability project launched in 2017 to mark the Club’s 50th anniversary.
