The history of the Argentario Sailing Weeks goes back to 1992 when a group of YCSS members organized a classic yachts regatta called Silver Sails. As the years passed the number of classic yachts increased and in 1999 the Argentario Sailing Week was finally born. The Regatta, which takes traditionally place in the second half of June, when the breeze is stronger, hosts a selection of yachts belonging to Classic, Vintage, Spirit of Tradition and Metric classes and sees the participation of a variety of competitors from all over the world.
The yachts are moored along the spectacular ancient harbour of Porto S. Stefano, called “La Pilarella”, where crews enjoy the historical charme of the village and its restaurants, bars and boutiques straight on the docks. Four challenging days of racing in some of the best sailing conditions in the Mediterranean combined with the famous YCSS hospitality make the Argentario Sailing Week not to be missed.
