I've had the opportunity to visit Porto Cervo twice.
1st time back in 1984 with the Swan 65 Evrika (Greek owned) during delivery from Pireus to Palma. Parked next to the Aga Kahn's boat. It was November and the place was empty.
Then in 1986 I was the bowman on board the Spanish 1-Tonner Ameldos for the Sardinia Cup. Now that was a big party!
We broke our mast on the first race and spend the night with the yard crew fixing the mast for stepping the next morning for the long distance race. That night with the yard crew I leaned how to cuss in Italian. We ended up 3rd as a team in the regatta.
