THE YCCS 2017 
REGATTA CALENDAR
CELEBRATING THE CLUB'S
50TH
ANNIVERSARY


If you really want to see how far we have come since the era of caravels, you should take a look at the sailing boats competing in the regattas organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. They glide over the water and embrace the wind like long lost lovers, and the stronger it blows the better. The YCCS turns 50 this year and is celebrating with a busier than ever regatta calendar, 20 events distributed over the Club’s bases in Porto Cervo and Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.

BAJA ÈPOQUE
BAJA SARDINIA, COSTA'S 
NUMBER ONE NIGHT SPOT

Once upon a time there was a charming place called Cala Battistoni, who took its name from one of its larger, more peaceful inhabitants who went by the name of Battista. In 1962, Domenico Gentili, owner of the company that made the famous Sole soap, walked through the gates of this remote agricultural holding which, at the time, could only be reached by dirt road.

ALISARDA
THE AIRLINE BORN
WITH THE COSTA SMERALDA

The company has come a long way since the early days when its planes touched down on a simple airstrip grazed bare by local sheep. Some of its journey has been uphill, of course, particularly after the advent of the low cost airline phenomenon. Meridiana is now Italy’s second largest airline and one of just five out of 70 to have survived the difficult years.

HISTORY UNVEILED

 
The first astronauts found it very pleasant. Gravity on the planet seemed normal. The atmosphere, though breathable, did, however, contain some subtle gases that had a strange effect: they infused the visitors with a sense of incredible bliss and the very precise, euphoric feeling of being in exactly the right place at the exactly the right time.

SUPER YACHT
PIÙ CHE ALTRO UN FATTO DI SOPRAVVIVENZA

I grandi yacht che arrivano d’estate in Costa Smeralda sono oltre 300, e tre quarti di questi si possono affittare a settimane. Ognuno è un piccolo, non tanto piccolo, mondo a sé. Le cose di cui deve approvvigionarsi da terra rispecchiano gusti, esigenze e capricci degli ospiti, che superano a volte l’immaginazione. 
Megayachts and helicopters are a marriage made in heaven. However, the main characteristic of any yacht is not its accessory quota but its size. Around 300 megayachts sail into Costa Smeralda each summer and three quarters of these are chartered.

Summer 1961. One day we drove along the "road" towards a bay known as Liscia di Vacca. At a certain point we emerged at the top of a rise and a landscape opened before us, a calm, beautiful bay nestled into the gentle roll of the land which went down to meet it.
