Summary Elba Island is the largest of the Tuscan Islands and third largest island in Italy after Sicily and Sardinia. It is located 6.5 miles off Italy’s Western coast and played host to Vincenzo Onorato’s Mascalzone Latino challenge syndicate for America’s Cup 2003.

Organized by Elba Tourism and local towns, local yacht clubs are united under the Elba Cup Organizing Authority and share management of the racing. Crews of seven compete in sleek IMX 40s for a share of the Euro 100,000 (approx. $123,250) prize purse, among the largest on the Swedish Match Tour.

In addition to a wealth of natural beauty in the way of winding beaches and dramatic cliffs, Elba boasts museums, golf courses, sports centers and amusement parks, offering something for everyone.
