Yacht Club Italiano

Yacht Club Italiano is the oldest sailing club in the Mediterranean: it boasts 1,100 members and was founded in Genova in 1879 by Vittorio Augusto Vecchi (known as Jack la Bolina) and a group of sailing enthusiasts, including H.M. the King Umberto I.

A long history of important events continues today with the regattas organized by the Club.

The Giraglia Rolex Cup, the SIAD Bombola d’oro Trophy, the Rolex Mba’s Conference & Regatta, the Millevele, the Grand Prix d’Italie Mini 6.50 Coppa Alberti and many more: here lies the future of Yacht Club Italiano.

Without ever forgetting the promotion of yachting as a training vehicle for young people: to teach them the love for sailing and for the sea, the Scuola di Mare Beppe Croce was founded in 2000.

Imagina manages all the communication for the Club and it’s regattas, including press office and media relations. Furthermore, Imagina helps organizing the Club’s events and manages the Club’s corporate communication.
