To celebrate the arrival of summer, the Yacht Club de Monaco held this year’s Italian Party in honour of the Costa Smeralda Yacht Club, with which it has been twinned since 1998. Presided by Prince Karim Aga Khan, the YCCS is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. A delegation of 20 members from the prestigious Italian club made the trip and were received by HRH Prince Charles de Bourbon des Deux-Siciles, member of the YCM’s Management Committee, and his wife.
Over 250 guests, among them many key figures in the yachting world including naval architect Espen Oeino, enjoyed a typical Sardinian menu prepared by renowned Italian Chef Sergio Mei, who for 20 years has made his mark on the Four Seasons in Milan. The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda has a festivity-packed season ahead of it, the highlight being the official birthday party on 5th August in Porto Cervo.
