Centro Velico Caprera (CVC) is an Italian school of sailing that claims to be the biggest on the Mediterranean sea. The school has its registered office in Milan and two bases of operations: the main one (and also the first to be born) is located near the island of Caprera, while the other base is located in Lerici in Liguria.
The school was founded in 1967 by Vittorio di Sambuy and Marco Notarbartolo di Sciara, under the auspices of the Italian Navy. Franco Brambilla, president of the Touring Club Italiano, joined enthusiastically to friends Sambuy and Notarbartolo. Guido Colnaghi, who represented in Italy the French association of Les Glénans, provided the spirit of teaching that marked the nature of the School. For two members joined the Association of Students in 1975.
