Costa Smeralda, sailing races from April to September

Milano: submitted the 2018 season events

On 1th March the new One Ocean Foundation was submitted in Milan a global-scale project that, starting from the Costa Smeralda, it intends to spread throughout the world to stop the ocean pollution.

The Charta Smeralda, established by Princess Zahra Aga Khan, becomes a concrete tool in protecting the sustainability of the oceans. Princess Zahra and the Commodore Riccardo Bonadeo, assisted by researcher Francesca Santoro (UNESCO), and celebrity sailors Paul Cayard and Mauro Pelaschi, presented the operational instrument of the Charta Smeralda, the One Ocean Foundation.

International plans, the involvement of WWF and other environmental groups, and of the Italian yacht clubs. Only one goal; the sustainability of the sea.

After the great success of the YCCS 50th anniversary, which established 20 sail races including three world championships, carrying into the emerald sea 161 participants, has also it been introduced the 2018 season program.

Porto Cervo dock will be populated by the most prestigious worldwide yacht clubs and sailing clubs that promise spectacular regattas, featured by unique moments on the sea and exclusive events on the mainland, from the waters of the Costa Smeralda to the beautiful scenery of the Arcipelago di La Maddalena.
