All the stages of the VELA Cup 2023

VELA Cup Brindisi, the party is here

A very ancient city, considered one of the largest natural ports in the entire Mediterranean Sea, Brindisi is called the “gateway to the East” because of its strategic geographic location at a crossroads of cultures and peoples. From the Marina di Brindisi, base of the VELA Cup Brindisi, in fact, one can easily reach within 100 miles the coasts of Croatia, Greece, Montenegro and Albania, plying two seas, the Ionian Sea and the Adriatic Sea. A strategic Marina, friendly and functional facility offering all the traditional services, from berthing with 650 berths up to 50 m, to toilets and showers, from the fuel station to a tourist office and a first-class boatyard.

Recognized by ADAC, Europe’s largest automobile club, as one of the best port facilities in southern Italy, says President Claudio Gorelli, the Marina di Brindisi is easily accessible from all over Europe, thanks to its proximity to Brindisi International Airport, which is only minutes from the marina.

Between marine reserves and whitewashed cities

We will sail close to the Torre Guaceto Nature Reserve. A reserve and marine protected area that covers an area of about 1,000 hectares and is considered an oasis between the land and the sea. Between sandy coves, transparent sea and posidonia meadows, the landscape of Torre Guaceto is the epitome of Mediterranean scrubland. For those wishing to delve inland, Ostuni, the White City, for its blindingly white stone buildings, whitewashed houses and cobblestone alleyways, is well worth a visit.
