The SIAD Bombola D’Oro Trophy is a regatta organized by the Italian Yacht Club, and a classic event in Italy’s sailing season. Situated in the picturesque bay of Portofino, this vintage regatta is a true spectacle that drives the attention of people across Europe.
The Bombola D’Oro partly connects its success to its boat class: the Dingy 12’. Designed in 1913, this class has maintained its appeal and tradition despite the assaults from extreme technical novelties. In The Portofino Classic, we will visit the port and experience this unique regatta to get a taste of the sailing culture in Italy.
