Milan, Italy, 4 May 2010

Riccardo Bonadeo, Commodore of the YCCS and President of team Azzurra, praises the organisers of the first edition of NavigaMI, the Boat Show that was recently held on the Naviglio Grande canal in Milan: “What a wonderful exhibition and a great tribute to the city’s historical connection to its waterways. The highlight of the show was our beloved 12 Metre Azzurra ’83, which has been superbly renovated to its original glory, on display along the canal. In a few days, Azzurra ’83 will arrive at the Costa Smeralda Olbia airport to greet all the sailing enthusiasts who will come to Sardinia to cheer the new Azzurra team who will be racing in the Louis Vuitton Trophy in La Maddalena (22nd May-6th June).
