Registration for the 2016 VELACup is officially open.
Signing up for the most crowded regatta in the Tyrrhenian Sea, which takes place on Saturday, May 7, 2016, in Santa Margherita Ligure, is very easy. Just follow this link and in just a few clicks you will also be among the protagonists in the water.

But why is the VELACup a must-see event? Here are 10 good reasons:

  1. Because the VELACup is open to all types of boats, all sizes and shapes, no age restrictions, no red tape: no tonnage certificate is required. Participating is super easy for everyone. Find out about all the categories in the regatta at this link.
  2. Because the VELACup is the most crowded regatta/sailing event in the Tyrrhenian Sea (last year 148 boats started and more than 2,000 sailors). So it is above all a big party with the same spirit as the legendary Barcolana.
  3. Because for the first time there will be a ranking dedicated to#plasticfantastic, that is, boats built between 1965 and 1999 made of fiberglass.
  4. Because everyone can participate. The most relaxed in “white sails” – without spi and gennaker-with a reserved ranking, and the most fierce crews.
  5. Because after the regatta there will be a big party on the dock within the VELAFestival setting that you can’t miss.
  6. Because all participants will be given a very rich Gift Bag full of gifts.
  7. Because if you don’t have a boat of your own, you can rent one locally with your friends or find a boarding place on your own.
  8. Because there is a “popular” registration fee and drifts participate for free.
  9. Because the setting of the VELACup is the magnificent Gulf of Tigullio, and a buoy of the coastal course will be positioned right in front of the spectacle of Portofino.
  10. Because even the last one to arrive will receive a prize!
