One hundred and fifty superyacht captains, owners and industry professionals attended the inaugural edition of The Italian Job,  ‘three days of wellness, gastronomy and Italian lifestyle’ staged by Amico & Co at the Marina di Loano.

The event, set in the surroundings of the Ligurian Riviera, welcomed attendees to the relatively new marina, which is a shining example of how impressive superyacht marinas can be.

The weekend began on Friday evening with cocktails inside the Yacht Club Marina di Loano, and was followed by a wonderful dinner at the marina’s Zeffirino Restaurant. Head chef Marco Zeffirino Belloni had carefully selected local delicacies for a traditional feast of multiple courses.

Saturday signalled the main event of the weekend – the golf tournament at nearby Garlenda Golf Club, with a class on offer for those not predisposed to golf. Perfect golfing conditions ensured that competition was fierce and scores low, with the weather so favourable that even SuperyachtNews.com was able to shoot a reasonably solid round.

The party returned to Marina di Loano for drinks, staged by Navimeteo, followed by a special prizegiving dinner during which the day’s best golfers were honoured.

The winners of the tournament were the team of Captain John Fleickenstein, Captain Michael Lovely, Captain David Farmery and Captain Luca Triggiani.

Amico’s president, Alberto Amico and his team of Captain David Morrison, Captain James Wood and Lawrence Miller, could only finish second. And third place went to Captain Anders Lauridsen, Verner Lauridsen, Mario Filippi and Renato Viacava.

There was also a prize for the day’s best putters – Luciana Battaglia in the women’s category and Edwin Cras in the men’s category.

During his presentation at the awards dinner Mr Amico explained that this type of event helps to achieve the difficult task of bringing Italian companies together in person. “We have managed to bring lots of companies together and this has been about teamwork. The Italian Job [exemplifies] the spirit that we share with our industry partners”, he explained.

The weekend drew to a close on Sunday with a day of spa treatments, at both the yacht club and Grand Hotel Alassio, which had hosted many of the guests alongside La Meridiana Relais and Chanteux.The spa treatments were reflective of the hotel's five-star rating and provided battle-scarred golfers and dinner party attendees with some much needed rejuvenation. It was universally agreed that the atmosphere created by the opulent surroundings was the perfect remedy after a day on the course.

With the Italian Championship of the Olympic Classes completed, which saw the best Italian sailors of the Olympic classes come together at the Marina di Loano, the programme of sporting and competition events at the marina is unrelenting.

The Marina di Loano is the only tourist marina representing Italy at the Monaco Yacht Show - the international bench mark for boat shows - which commenced yesterday, the 25th September, and which will run until Sunday 28th. The Marina di Loano is located at stand QD 26 in the North Harbour and is occupying the exhibition space in partnership with Gruppo Amico & Co of Genoa, a European leader in refitting that manages the Amico Loano shipyard located within the Marina di Loano.

At the Yacht Club Marina di Loano, on the other hand, the weekend of the 28th-29th September will combine pure sailing passion, public relations activities, top level sport and the desire to enjoy the club environment in good company.

Indeed, on the 28th-29th September the "XIV Trofeo Challenge Niccolò Dodero” will be held, organised by the Yacht Club Marina di Loano and by AVeLa Tradizionale, an association that brings sailing enthusiasts together who hold close to their hearts the survival of the Mediterranean’s traditional sailing vessels and the recovery of the historical and cultural heritage associated with them: from the quay it will be possible to admire lateen, rugger, spritsail and 'pedarola' rigging, just to name a few of the most common forms, as well as rowing and work boats.

In addition to this event, the ninth edition of the Lawyer’s Cup will be held over the same days, an event reserved for legal firms and dedicated to lawyers with a passion for sailing. Five teams will take part in the regatta on board the latest J/80 monotypes equipped with gennakers and approved for 5 people.

Alongside these events, over the same weekend, it will also be possible to meet on the quay two Italian stars of international match racing: we’re talking about Simone Ferrarese, winner of this year’s Congressional Cup, and Francesco Bruni, the tactician of the Luna Rossa. The two champions will be at the Marina di Loano from Friday 27th to Saturday 28th for a series of training sessions in view of their participation in the Argo Group Gold Cup, a key event of the match race international circuit that will take place between the 7th and 13th October at Hamilton in the Bermuda islands.
