Since 2002, the historic 5-star luxury hotel in Bellagio sponsors a Trophy for Old and Classic Sailing boats on Lake Como.
The Classic Sailing Boats Trophy organized by the Lake Como Pescallo Sailing Club and sponsored by the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni will take place this year from September 21st to 23rd, 2018.
The Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni is the main sponsor of the event since the first edition in 2002. Once more, it confirms itself as a prestigious point of reference involved in promoting the history and the sailing culture in Lake Como, where it is possible to see also a Lake Como Boat Museum (in Pianello del Lario) and a Museum of Navigational Instruments (in San Giovanni, a hamlet of Bellagio).
The Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni Trophy for Classic Sailing Boats, at its 17th edition, has become now an unmissable event for sailing passionates and it traditionally ends the season of the summer events of Bellagio.
Thanks to the support of Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, the Trophy has also been the first Italian Trophy for Classic Sailing Boats held on a lake.
The program includes a gala dinner on Saturday evening in the sumptuous Grand Hotel Royal Salon, where owners and crews must arrive wearing the Trophy shirt so they can then take a picture on the huge staircase of the hotel.
Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni Trophy for Classic Sailing Boats has the patronage of ASDEC (Classic Boats Association), of the Lombardy Region and of the Municipality of Bellagio.
