It is a very special year for the Costa Smeralda Yacht Club: this year the YCCS celebrates its first 50th anniversary, a long period that marked the history of Porto Cervo and enriched it with art, culture and passion for the sea.
"New partners and new commitments will accompany us in the celebrations of the Club's 50th anniversary. A goal that speaks of history, values and innovative forces that have made in the past and will make in future the Yacht Club a keystone in the international yachting landscape."
With these words, the commodore of the Costa Smeralda Yacht Club, Riccardo Bonadeo, expresses all its happiness for the celebration of the 50 years of foundation.
"It seems just yesterday: I still clearly see in my mind the images of when the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda was born. It was 1967 and the bay of Porto Cervo - so it was already called in the toponymy of the official nautical charts - began to attract the lovers of such incredible bay and its sea, which I consider one of the most spectacular in the Mediterranean. Back then, we were a few pioneers, pure dreamers... ".
Prince Aga Khan's words are so romantic and enlighten an indissoluble love for Sardinia: the result is Porto Cervo, a precious jewel in the world of sailing.
