Tre Golfi Sailing Week: a not-to-be-missed festival

tre golfi sailing week

Would you like to sail in one of the most beautiful places in the world? Join the Tre Golfi Sailing Week, the most eagerly awaited event of the year, which includes long distance and coastal races among the beautiful islands of the Gulf of Naples. The appointment is set from May 14-21.

The historic Tre Golfi Sailing Week race is back in spring from May 14-21. It is one of the most popular and crowded events on the Italian racing calendar and has always attracted the best in international sailing. Why? First of all for the setting: sailing between the Amalfi Coast, the Campania islands and the Gulfs of Naples, Gaeta and Salerno is always a captivating experience. Unique places in the world and an international tourist destination with the highest density of starred restaurants and enormous hotel accommodation.

The other great strength of the Tre Golfi Sailing Week is the rich programme that includes four high-profile events. The first event is the historic Tre Golfi race, which celebrates its 67th anniversary this year and is also open to vintage yachts and two-person crews. The event, valid for the 2022 Italian Offshore Championship, starts on Saturday 14th May from the Santa Lucia bay under the walls of Castel dell’Ovo in Naples and follows the classic 150-mile route: Procida, Ventotene, Ponza, Li Galli rocks (opposite Positano) and arrival in Capri, before returning to Sorrento. Entries close on 30 March, so it’s best to hurry.

Orc, Maxi and vintage yachts in water

The second important event of the Tre Golfi Sailing Week is the Maxi European Championship, a very absolute premiere (never competed before). The competition, open to Mini Maxi (18.29 – 24.08 m) and Maxi yachts (24.09 – 30.50 m), will use the IRC rating system and will consist of an offshore race that coincides with the Tre Golfi course, plus four days of inshore racing, the latter part of the IMA Mediterranean Inshore Challenge.

The third event is the the Orc Mediterranean Championship, a classic of international offshore sailing, which returns 16 years after the last edition in 2006. The championship starts with a 150-mile long distance race along the same route as the classic Tre Golfi race, starting in Naples on Saturday 14 May, and continues with three days of racing on the buoys from Thursday 19 to Saturday 21 May in the stretch of sea between Capri and Sorrento. The latter are also valid for the Tyrrhenian National Championship and selection for the Italian ORC Championship.

To date, there are 120 crews registered for the Tre Golfi Sailing Week, 116 of which are racing the long race, 28 are Maxi participants in the European Championship and 40 are ORC class boats. The start is still more than two months away. Would you like to be there?
