Yacht Club Costa Smeralda
YACHT CLUB COSTA SMERALDA
Porto Cervo, Italy
YCCS returns to Newport to compete in the Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup for the second time after a decade's length of break from the event. YCCS' only other IC was the inaugural competition in 2009.
What the YCCS lacks in years since it was established — it was founded in 1967 by H.H. Aga Khan, Andrè Ardoin, Giuseppe Kerry Mentasti, and Luigi Vietti — it more than makes up for in other ways, not the least of which is its impressive facility. In 1977, the club moved to new premises overlooking the Porto Cervo marina, a modern and functional structure ideal for hosting numerous members and the ever-growing regatta calendar.
Skipper: Antonio Sodo Migliori
