Club History

The Yacht Club Argentino was founded on July 2, 1883, making it the oldest yacht club in Latin America. It has nearly 3,000 members who enjoy the club’s four locations (Buenos Aires, San Fernando, and two in Mar del Plata). The YCA, along with other international clubs, played an integral role in founding the International Yacht Racing Union (now World of Sailing) in 1907. The YCA organizes the most important Latin American championship, with more than 500 boats, including one-designs from Optimists to Soto 33s. The club also organizes major offshore races such as Buenos Aires-Rio, South Atlantic Rolex Cup, and Buenos Aires-Mar del Plata. Among its current members are Olympic medalists Juan de la Fuente, Javier Conte, and Lucas Calabrese. To visit the club's website please click here

Among the crew selected are five sailors under the age of 27, each of whom represented both Argentina and YCA in several championships around the world. In addition, five of the most experienced sailors at the club will round out the team. Together, they will be participating in the regatta, working and sailing together. Skipper Emilio Miguel and his team will be sailing together in a SOTO 40, a mono hull with an asymmetric spinnaker, quite similar to the Swan 42.
