SIAD Trophy Bombola d’Oro, regatta organized by Yacht Club Italiano at its twenty-second edition is one of the “classics” of the sailing season. An appointment not to be missed by enthusiasts of this fascinating class - Dinghy 12ft.
This is thanks to a prestigious club and to a wonderful site - Portofino - splendid surroundings for this event, where the atmosphere of the “Bombola d’Oro” is a stimulating mixture of competitive spirit and pleasure of being together.
The SIAD Trophy Bombola d’Oro is in fact a little special. It is a difficult regatta that requires preparation and technical ability but succeeds in combining this with the pleasure of sailing with friends, always ready to help each other in case of difficulty and share experience and emotions. Thanks also to a boat, the Dinghy 12ft, that, designed in 1913, celebrates 105 years of life and has been able to maintain its fascination and tradition far from the most advanced technology.
But the real merit for the success of the SIAD Trophy Bombola d’Oro lies above all with those who gave birth to this event, thinking of it as great occasion of meeting friends and welcoming yachtsmen coming from abroad.
The “Bombolino”, as veterans affectionately call it, in fact originated from the passion for sea and sailing of Roberto Sestini and a group of friends at Portofino. One evening in 1996, sitting at the table in a restaurant, they decided to give space to their passion and organize a regatta, open to everyone, where they could compete with friends, see who was the best and share the mutual love for sea and of sailing.
This simple and fascinating idea gave birth to a regatta, which has become a “classic” of the International sailing season. Also this year the event will take place in the Tigullio Gulf for 3 days, so as to have an extra day to spend happy hours with friends.
