Sailing and Power Boat Regattas in Argentina Author: Bob Frassinetti Email: bob@frassinetti.com Published: June, 2004 For the last 100 years Argentina has been the home to international regattas and off shore competitions in Latin America. This country’s passion for water sports and sail trips began during the last years of the nineteenth century, when a few of the most well brought young boys of our society’s most respectful families engaged in an incredible adventure as they sailed through the Atlantic coasts towards the southern Patagionia lands. Mr. Hortencio Aguirre Anchorena and some of his closest friends got together after the amazing experience and decided to open the Yacht Club Argentino. It was a few months latter when the first sail regatta took place in our country. This was one of the biggest events in the southern continent at that time, all the most important families and personalities open their busy schedules to witness it. “It was unforgettable”, this is the impression that can be traced down through the papers of that time. It must have been, for these chick events haven’t stopped ever since. Located in the port area of Argentina’s capital city Buenos Aires, the Buenos Aires Yacht Club lighthouse was built during the late 20s of the twentieth century. Its aesthetics had been marked by a world-wide architectural trend: Art Decó.
