The Swan Cup
The Swan Cup is back again: sign up for one of the sailing schools on the Costa Smeralda and you just might become one of the champions competing for this trophy!
Nobody is born a champion: having a chance to compete in important regattas like the Swan Cup is a long and arduous journey that for many competitors started at a sailing school on the Costa Smeralda. With its regular and stimulating winds this part of Sardinia is considered a true paradise for sailing enthusiasts. The Colonna Hotel du Golf is located in a handy and central position with respect to the coast and so is an excellent base from which to follow the Swan Cup regattas.
We would like to remind all those who would like to register at a sailing school on the Costa Smeralda that the Gallura sea is an ideal location for the regattas attracting the world’s best craft and crews who come here to race for prestigious trophies like the Sardinia Cup, the famous Vela & Golf and, in particular, the Swan Cup, which has been held here every two years since 1980 and attracts boats from all over the world.
And so it can be really exciting, especially for children, to join a sailing school on the Costa Smeralda during one of these fabulous events to enjoy the atmosphere, admire the world’s fastest boats and crews and dream that one day they can emulate them. The Swan Cup is held in these waters on the second week of September on even years. Don’t miss the amazing sight of 100 yachts ready to do battle to win the title of champion.
