For the last 30 years, a prime event for the Mediterranean regattas. People from all over the world come to enjoy the regatta and admire the most elegant and unique boats of all time.

The city to be discovered. Weather, sea, sailing, Mediterranean Diet…
Come to Imperia and discover its beauties.


Around 30 boats attended the first regatta. It was a significant number that we can consider the first step
that allows the exponential grow of the gathering.

The regatta entered different international Circuits, and from 2006 to 2018 Officine Panerai has been the Title Sponsor, who included Vele d’Epoca di Imperia in the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge.

Thanks to its history, Vele d’Epoca is ready to come back annually.


The regatta is organized by Yacht Club Imperia with the technical support of Circolo Nautico al Mare Alassio and Club del Mare Diano Marina.
