CORSICACLASSIC
The Corsica Classic is a sporting, lifestyle and very exclusive event that forms part of the tradition of beautiful Mediterranean classical sailing regattas. With the Régates Napoleon, launched this year by the Corsica Classic Yachting association, the regatta positions itself as the number one classical sailing race on the island of beauty and an unmissable event in the Mediterranean. In the official 2020 yachting calendar, the Corsica Classic, with the Régates Napoleon – held from 20 to 25 July in Ajaccio – is the first regatta to open the season of gatherings in the Mediterranean, after all events were cancelled or postponed in Autumn due to the pandemic. Open to all CIM-rated traditional yachts and IRC 2020-rated "Spirit-of-tradition" yachts, this race forms part of the official circuit organised by the International Committee of the Mediterranean and the French Association of Traditional Yachts (AFTY).
A travelling regatta that combines elegance, sport, fair play and adventure around the island of beauty, sponsored by the Yacht Club de France U Capu Biancu
