Riccardo Bonadeo On 50 Years For Yacht Club Costa Smeralda
Boasting a rich history dating back half-a-century, Yacht Club Costa Smeralda is one of the world’s most iconic yachting destinations.
Since 2004, the lavish yacht club has also played host to the Perini Navi Cup, the sailing calendar’s most exclusive regatta. During the cup’s 2015 edition, we sat down with Riccardo Bonadeo, Commodore of Yacht Club Costa Smeralda Commodore, to hear his thoughts ahead of a landmark year.
“From the early beginning when the Aga Khan founded the club, the targeted approach and scope was to realise here, in this particular site, which is unique in the world in terms of location, wind conditions, rocks, islands, colour of the sea, the excellence in yachting and organising international racing. This was the real target from the beginning.
