VELAFestival by sailboat has a whole different flavor. Here’s how to do it


Give or treat yourself to a subscription to the print + digital Journal of Sailing and for only 69 euros a year you get the magazine at home plus read it on your PC, smartphone and tablet. With a sea of advantages.

From May 4 to 7, VELAFestival will be staged, and there is no better way to experience a great celebration of Italian sailing than to come sailing. Enjoying the dock, talking to great sailors, finding out who will be the Sailor of the Year, participating in the VELA Cup in one of the most beautiful settings in Liguria. Don’t you have a boat? No problem. Thanks to the service offered by MondoVela, you can choose different formulas with which to participate “from aboard” at the VELAFestival, without wasting time in lengthy research, because we provide you with “packages” tailored to the event.(cover photo by James Robinson Taylor)

In fact, you can decide with a simple click whether to rent the boat from Wednesday evening (May 3) from Fezzano (the price is the same as the weekend) to be in Santa Margherita as early as Thursday and cut the opening ribbon of the event with us and disembark on Sunday (May 7) after spending four days together and participating in the SAIL Cup on Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7, and enjoyed live coverage of the Sailor of the Year award ceremony on Friday night, May 5, the party on Saturday night, and having participated in all the activities we have planned for you. If you are not lucky enough to be able to take off work for all four days of the event, don’t panic.

We have also thought of weekend-friendly boardings (May 5-7 departing from Chiavari) that will allow you to enjoy the highlight of the VELAFestival from Friday’s Evening of Champions to Sunday’s closing, day when you can choose whether to race or participate in the great Treasure Hunt at the Dock that we are organizing. But not only that, if you only have one day, and you absolutely want to spend it at sea we have the solution for you: a rental fee per day per person, book your place on board, directly from Santa Margherita, for the day you prefer and you’re done. Without having to rent the whole boat. FIND ALL THE OFFERS HERE.

…There is also another way to experience the VELAFestival from aboard. In the company Matteo Miceli and Maurizio Vettorato lead an exclusive offshore course with two super boats (Class 40 and Class 9.50) and super skippers for fun and learning. Four days to learn, have fun, race, listen to lectures, participate in the Sailor of the Year award ceremony, and sharpen gaps while improving one’s experience in cruising boat handling. Prepare for summer in the best way, you will not regret it! Included in the participation fee will be participation in the Santa Margherita Vela Cup and mooring in the harbor.
