Vele d’Epoca di Imperia, from wave to breeze: the most beautiful PHOTOS

The 23rd edition of Vele d’Epoca, the regatta reserved for classic boats that this year saw 45 of the most beautiful “historic” boats sailing in the Mediterranean on the starting line in Liguria, took place in Imperia.

Also adding to the sizzle was the weather, which had the fleet sailing in very different conditions, from the formed wave of the beginning to the breezes of the end with a final day of racing kissed by winds between 9 and 12 knots and a nearly calm sea
