One of the most important events of the Mediterranean sports calendar is undoubtedly the Regata Loro Piana Super Yacht that last year brought together a record number of superyachts in the beautiful resort of Porto Cervo.


An exclusive event

Organized by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in conjunction with Boat International Media and sponsored by the Loro Piana brand, this major sailing event already promises to be a success!

The Regatta Loro Piana Superyacht will open the cycle of Mediterranean sailing events and will be held from 30 May to 3 June 2017.

Four intensive days of sailing competitions, with yachts up to 100 foot long, an impressive fleet that will leap against the backdrop of the Maddalena Archipelago.

Each evening will be packed with events with exclusive guests and the beautiful Porto Cervo will be buzzing with dinners and moments of pure fun and elegance.

The 2016 event, organized by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in collaboration with Boat International Media, has hosted thirty of the largest sailing yachts in the world.

The race, which is held every year since 2008 and has reached its 10th edition, is famous both for the elegance and prowess of the participating yachts and for the rich and varied program of events offered by the organizers and the same sponsor.

This year, the Regatta, which attracts more and more people every year, is enriched with a new category: the Corinthian Spirit Class, recently developed by the SuperYacht Racing Association (SYRA), in collaboration with the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC).

This new category has been introduced to increase attendance at these events by even less experienced crews while reducing race costs.

Through some arrangements and new regulations, it has been possible to reduce the number of crew members and optimize the performance of the boat without losing the fun and the exclusivity of this kind of competition.

With the splendid structure of the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Porto Cervo and the solid reputation of the organizers of this event, well known all over the world, owners and crew can expect exclusive services and hospitality of the highest quality and the highest level of competitions!
