The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda recently completed its second location, a state-of the-art marina at the tip of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, flanked by a clubhouse that will be linked to the Oil Nut Bay Resort, which is accessible only by helicopter or—fittingly—by boat. To celebrate, they’re teaming up with luxury Italian brand Loro Piana to host the second annual Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous, a four-day affair that will host a gathering of the world’s finest vessels for a long weekend of racing and cruising. Those who stay beachside won’t want for entertainment either, with nightly parties, including a Louis XIII–style tasting dinner, spa treatments at the resort and, of course, endless sun to lounge under.
