Milan, 6th April, 2022 – Giorgio Armani is the new Title Sponsor of the 15th edition of the YCCS (Yacht Club Costa Smeralda) Superyacht Regatta, to be held from the 31st of May to the 4th of June on the waters of the Costa Smeralda, Sardinia, Italy.
The four-day regatta will also see a series of activities on dry land, including the opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of Giorgio Armani by visiting its pop-up store at the Costa Smeralda Yacht Club, its new space in the Hotel Cala di Volpe and the Giorgio Armani boutique that overlooks the iconic Porto Cervo promenade.
Giorgio Armani says: ‘How can you not love the sea! I only knew of it as a child from the shore, because we were in times of war, but when it was possible for me, as an adult, I really experienced it and I realized that a boat trip, by sea, is one of the most desirable things in the world. For this reason, when I created my first boat, the Mariù, I risked becoming a boat designer. Now, on the occasion of the Superyacht Regatta, it was natural for me to be one of the sponsors. This allowed me to get even closer to the reality that surrounds us, made up of wonderful landscapes and a sea, the Mediterranean, which I love deeply.’
On the occasion of this event, it will also be possible to discover the Giorgio Armani Mare men’s and women’s collections, here enriched by a special selection of men’s clothing and accessories related to the world of sailing. The collection will be available in the Giorgio Armani Porto Cervo boutique, at the Hotel Cala di Volpe and in Giorgio Armani stores, including those in Milan, Venice, Saint-Tropez and Cannes.
Organized by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda since 2008, the Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta is for superyachts with a minimum length of 90 feet and multihulls of at least 50 feet. As in previous years, the event will also include the Southern Wind Rendezvous and Trophy.
