Oyster’s 25th Regatta, our ‘Silver Jubilee’ event will be hosted by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, which is located in the charming village of Porto Cervo, on the coast of Sardinia. Established in 1967 by His Highness the Aga Khan, and twinned with the Yacht Club de Monaco and the New York Yacht Club, the YCCS also has a reciprocal agreement with the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes, which has hosted several Oyster regattas in recent years.
The Oyster Regatta – Sardinia 2010 will follow a similar format to previous Oyster events, with the emphasis on a fun and friendly event for all the family, with low key racing by day and serious parties and dinners by night. As always, owners who prefer not to race are just as welcome to attend with their yachts and join in the social events.
Commodore Riccardo Bonadeo has extended a very warm welcome to all Oyster owners and their guests and crews to the YCCS Clubhouse which overlooks the Piazza Azzurra and provides breathtaking views of the harbour and dramatic sunsets over the Mediterranean. Berthing is already pre-booked for the Oyster fleet for the nights of 21-25 September inclusive and all the facilities of the Club will be made available to everyone participating in the Regatta. Further details will be available shortly, but as we expect a lot of interest in this event, owners are asked to pre-register now to ensure their place at the regatta.
