Eight Southern Wind yachts ranging from 78 to 105 feet took part last week in the Southern Wind Family Rendezvous held in Porto Rotondo, Sardinia over two unforgettable days.

On Saturday and Sunday, the yachts chased each other through the islands of the Golfo di Congianus and the Archipelago della Maddalena. Carefree days ended with the sound of corks popping from magnums of champagne in the Golfo di Marinella off Porto Rotondo.

The Yacht Club Porto Rotondo offered a stunning backdrop for the celebration where owners and their friends and families enjoyed sailing and relaxing in true Southern Wind family spirit.

On Saturday morning the participants gathered in front of a lovely breakfast for the event briefing and after the day at sea, the Count Donà dalle Rose, founder of the YCPR, kindly welcomed the Rendezvous guests to his prestigious club for dinner. An awards cocktail closed the event on Sunday evening.

"The enthusiastic participation of so many of our owners shows us how united the Southern Wind community is. It was wonderful to see so many old friends and to welcome so many new ones. Owning a Southern Wind yacht also means this: 

performance sailing in a stunning fleet, not necessary racing but challenging friends and like-minded owners. These SWS Rendezvous events focus on the ultimate essence of yachting: pure sailing enjoyment" said Andrea Micheli, Southern Wind's Commercial Director.

The Southern Wind team thanks everyone who added their enthusiastic participation to this unforgettable event and we look forward to seeing you again in 2022.
