XVI SWS Rendezvous and Trophy | PORTO CERVO REGATTA 2022


31/05/2022 - 04/06/2022

In the wake of last year’s success, Southern Wind is pleased to announce that the 16th edition of the Southern Wind Rendezvous and Trophy will be held in Porto Cervo from May 31st to June 4th, 2022 within the cornice of the Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta, an event organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda since 2008 that has a new and prestigious Title Sponsor.

As always at this unmissable Porto Cervo regatta event, participants will enjoy four days of sailing in Sardinia’s stunning Costa Smeralda followed by a glamorous social programme ashore in the relaxed family atmosphere that only the Southern Wind Rendezvous and Trophy can offer.

Last year, eight Southern Wind yachts were docked at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda: the newly launched RP-Nauta 100 Morgana, SW96 Seatius, SW94 Aragon, SW110 Thalima, the SW82s Grande Orazio and Ammonite, and the SW100s Cape Arrow and Freebird, representing more than half of the event’s fleet. We are expecting many more for this year’s edition.

We very much hope that you can join us for this special occasion and that we’ll see you soon in Porto Cervo!

Confirming SWS’s vocation for building versatile yachts, participants can either race in the SWS Trophy or enjoy the exciting programme dedicated to the Rendezvous fleet.

The SWS Trophy is for racing owners who want to prove the performance potential of their yachts with the support of an experienced and professional crew. SWS Trophy yachts will race within the Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta in a Class of their own.

The SWS Rendezvous offers less racing-oriented owners the chance to enjoy sailing in the company of family and friends. While a bit of friendly competition with other Southern Wind owners may emerge, it will be in the form of a race to the beach.

The enthusiastic participation of so many of our owners in recent SWS Rendezvous events shows us how united the Southern Wind community is. It’s always wonderful to see so many old friends and to welcome so many new ones. These SWS Rendezvous events focus on the ultimate essence of yachting.” – Andrea Micheli, Southern Wind Commercial Director.


SWS TROPHY is held within the Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta whose official Notice Of Race defines the general racing rules, rating certificate and registration procedures. ALL SWS YACHTS with LOA of 21metres or above and with a current ORCsy or ORCcs certificate (for Corinthian Spirit Class), are eligible for the SWS TROPHY.

All yachts participating in the Rendezvous will be given a “daily sailing course”, specifically conceived by the Race Committee in accordance with the Southern Wind team. The length and complexity of the course will vary according to the fleet composition and the daily weather conditions. A starting procedure will be called for the Rendezvous yachts, which will then head off on fleet sailing sessions through the Arcipelago della Maddalena. Natural finish lines will be in some of Sardinia’s most breath taking bays, where yachts will drop anchor and enjoy refined lunches and wine.
