The event program includes two or three daily practice runs depending on weather conditions, with onshore entertainment with games and raffles and also an F1 simulator provided by the Hannibal Marina.

Conclusion on July 16 with the last trials and the awards ceremony, again at the Hannibal Marina, which contributed, with its Sports Director Loris Plet, with the Municipality of Monfalcone and the Tito Nordio Sailing School, to build a symbolic event for the support of sports activities of the youngest.
