The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda also provided a beautiful venue for the regatta's glittering social programme. Kicking off with the Welcome Cocktail on the opening night, guests also enjoyed after-race drinks with Pantaenius, the highly anticipated Loro Piana Owners' Dinner with food by Niko Romito and entertainment provided by pianist Dimitiri Naïditch (pictured) and, of course, the sunset beach party at nearby Phi Beach.
