The beauty of the TAG Heuer Vela Cup in Santa Margherita Ligure (May 4-5), the “mother” leg of the Mediterranean’s busiest regatta circuit, is that all boats can participate, with no limitation on age, type or length.
25 YEARS IN TWO, WITH THE FEVA AT VELA CUP
The very young Jordi Rodriguez, class of 2006 from Brescia, found out by seeing the feast of sails at sea: and decided that he would not miss the last edition for any reason. And in registering his little RS Feva (3.65 x 1.42 m) he took the opportunity to write to us:
“I am a 12-year-old boy. I have been boating for 6 years and have been competing for 4 years. I race the RS Feva. My bowman’s name is Tommaso Acerbis and he is 13 years old. I love sailing, with my bowman I have so much fun and I love the Feva.
Last year I came to the VELAFestival, saw the regatta from the beach-I didn’t know that everyone could participate and with any boat; I promised myself that this year I would do it too with my bowman and our Feva. We have been waiting for a year and are looking forward to Saturday, May 5!“.
Jordi and Tommaso, we look forward to seeing you at the VELA Cup again this year!!!
And we are waiting for all of you. Participating is easy and you do not need to have a boat! You can count on My Match Race, the virtual platform where sailors who want to race meet.
