The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda will reopen its doors on 20 June, resuming its services and all activities in a safe manner.

During the period of forced closure, all the relevant provisions have been implemented and adapted to the structure and activities of the YCCS in order to ensure a safe and tranquil stay in the Costa Smeralda for members, visitors to the structure, partners and staff.

The extension of the season until the end of October has also been confirmed, with the hope that this decision will have a positive impact on the region and that the various local tourist services will follow suit.

The extension of the YCCS opening period will also allow regattas to be held in late October, with the Sailing Champions League event having been moved to take place from 15 to 18 October.

The YCCS Sailing School will participate in the national Vela Day, promoted by the Italian Sailing Federation and scheduled for 28 June, while Sailing School courses will resume from the following day, 29 June.

As previously communicated, the traditional September sporting events, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and the Rolex Swan Cup, will be confirmed by the end of June, when the Italian Sailing Federation guidelines are defined.

Information on any developments regarding the activities of the YCCS in relation to the Covid-19 crisis will be published in the dedicated section of the website.
