il più antico club velico del Mediterraneo Associations


The International Council of Yacht Clubs (ICOYC) is a non-profit association of prestigious yacht clubs from all over the world. The Council’s mission is to enable its member clubs to share their experience in the world of yachting with a view to improve their functionality and the standard of the services they provide. This association, previously existing as a “concept” for several years, took shape, and acquired a name, between 2005 and 2010. Yacht Club Italiano (YCI) joined in 2011 with the late Paolo Caffarena as its “Representative” and “ICOYC Officer” until 2014, when Carlo de Thierry took over. Nowadays YCI has Giampaolo Rocca as its Representative and Ludovica Reggio as Alternate. As one of the oldest clubs in the world, YCI contributes with the best Mediterranean seagoing traditions, and enjoys twinning or reciprocity agreements with several clubs worldwide: over 30 at the moment, with more to come in the future. Next “ICOYC Commodore’s World Forum” will be held by the end of September 2019 at Royal Cork Yacht Club in Ireland, concurrent with the celebration of its 300th Anniversary. RCYC, the oldest yacht club in the world, has a reciprocity agreement with Yacht Club Italiano
