After the success of the first edition
, animated by as many as twelve teams, a total of 36 boats, and ended with the victory of the Parma Yacht Club team formed by the Sydney 46 GLS Stella, the Farr 40 Farr Marble and the M37 Coconut, the Silver Buoy-Yacht Club Challenge Trophy Bruno Calandriello is ready to return to enliven the offshore sailing season with its innovative team formula and the consequent considerable interest garnered among sailing clubs and shipowners, attracted by this club challenge that reprises the formula adopted so many years ago by the legendary Mouths Week.

In fact, several requests have already been received by the Punta Ala Yacht Club., the Tuscan association that, with the support of sponsors Prysmian and Pharmanutra, conceived and launched this club team competition, in anticipation of the second edition of the challenge trophy established in memory of historic YCPA President Bruno Calandriello, scheduled in the always windy waters surrounding the Punta Ala promontory from Thursday, June 4 to Sunday, June 7 (first races Friday, June 5).

The formula in this case involves the participation of club teams consisting of three boats each, two with IRC rating certificates and one with ORC International certificate, who will compete in a series of trials between the buoys and in a coastal regatta to win the coveted challenge trophy, as well as for other important trophies including a combination with the famous 151 Miglia offshore regatta, scheduled the previous week between Livorno and Punta Ala.

More information, Notice of Race and Entry Form in download included, on the second edition of the Gavitello d’Argento-Yacht Club Challenge Trophy Bruno Calandriello, scheduled in Punta Ala June 4-7, is online at or by calling YC Punta Ala at 0564 923232.
