Yacht Club Punta Ala

Yacht Club Punta Ala

Yacht Club Punta Ala was born July 24, 1976 with the signing of the Constitution by the Founding Members who appointed Mr. President. Giampiero Pesenti. Originally the Club was located in some local small square near the Landing. Right now the need was felt that the Club undertook an institutional eminently sporting activities and took away the first sailing events. At the same time showed the obvious need to provide a suitable venue for the Club: it is for the rapid growth of the social body and the quantity and quality of sporting events, the Club was organizing. Finally in 1992, thanks to Prof. Bruno Calandriello, came permission for the construction of new headquarters that he saw the inauguration on the evening of July 7, 1995.
