Published:01/11/2005 S&S Swan Rendezvous

The Sparkman & Stephens Swan Association, in collaboration with Nautor's Swan, will organize the 2005 edition of the S&S Swan Rendezvous in Tuscany at the Etrusca Marina. In 2003 the S&S Swan Association organized the first event of this kind, and it was an unprecedented success with 23 early Swan designs gathering together for two days of sailing, jolly parties etc.

Pekka Koskenkyla (founder of the Nautor shipyard back in the '60s) was the leading participating figure, and even Mr. Leonardo Ferragamo, who is now Nautor's owner, took part at the Rendez-vous and was really impressed by all these magnificent old ladies!

For this 2005 edition the organizing committee has planned a four days event, with long and short races among the magical islands of the coast. Each evening there will be a special entertainment.
At least 30 boats are likely to be at the Etrusca Marina in August. This will be the first time so many Sparkman & Stephens Swans will be reunited at a dedicated event.
