It is online thelist of those registered for VELA CUP 2017 in Santa Margherita (we remind you that from this year. the VELA Cup becomes a 5-stage circuit, with an overall winner, which will not necessarily be the first-place boat, but, thanks to a secret compensation formula that puts all boats on an equal footing, will be independent of size). Find out at this link those who have already registered for the most crowded regatta in the Tyrrhenian Sea and take the opportunity to sign up (the first 100 registrants get a free underwater flashlight from Osculati) you too with your boat or for seeking boarding To participate even if you are alone.

We would also like to remind you that the VELA CUP on Saturday, May 6, is one of the main events of our VELAFestival that will take place May 4-7 in Santa Margherita. This is an innovative regatta/sailing event open to all boats of all sizes and shapes, with no age restrictions, no red tape or technical complications, with
rankings compiled based on length
.Everyone can participate. The more relaxed “white sails”-without spi and gennaker-with a reserved ranking, and the more fierce crews who want to compete by taking advantage of the full potential of the boat and crew capabilities.The VELACup then moves, once the regatta is over, to the spaces of the VELAFestival and culminates in a big party at the dock and in the event space with the award ceremony, a show with live music, cocktails and a buffet provided by the organizers. A reminder of great news this year: there will also be racing on Sundays. We thought of those who come from far away and want to go to the water the next day as well. It will be an extra opportunity to test oneself in the waters of Tigullio in a combination with a dedicated ranking, including Saturday’s regatta and Sunday’s regatta with final prize-giving. A “litmus test” for the disappointed and for those who just don’t feel like going home and want to enjoy the party and toast to the last.
This year we will really have boats of all types, from the Arpege Sula to the multi-winner X-35 Spirit of Nerina, from the Sweden 36 Foiting to the brand new Mylius 65 Oscar 3, passing through DHL Adelasia di Torres, the M37 of owners Renato Azara and Alberto Nobis already protagonists at the VELA Cup Trofeo Formenton winning in their category, to name but a few.
That’s the beauty of VELA CUP. At the start alongside you could find anyone from Loro Piana’s My Song to Mauro Pelascheir at the helm of a wooden Sangermani, from two boys aboard a 420 to an infant aboard an Oceanis participating in his first regatta. Because when we say for everyone, we really mean for everyone!
And as Rinaldo Santi tells us,“I would like to confirm that she will be part of my crew, for the third time, the veteran of this sail Angela Besana, 99 years old, the mother of my wife Marinella, with a passion for the sea inherited from her grandparents, Love for the sea ‘lengthens life’ evidently.”
