All the stages of the VELA Cup 2023

VELA Cup Tuscany: ready, set, go!

VELA Cup Toscana is the regatta for everyone that you can’t miss. A coastal trail, within everyone’s reach, around buoys and reefs in Tuscany’s most beautiful waters along the Etruscan Coast. And in the evening, a big party with food and music for everyone to enjoy together. Big news this year is the new “Classic Boat” class. In addition to the usual division into the categories Sport Boat – for the more sporty who want to use spi, gennaker or code 0 – and Cruising Boat – for those who want to have fun with family or friends and sail white sails – from this year there will be a separate ranking for classic boats, more than 25 years old, even if mass-built or made of fiberglass.

Prizes and gadgets for all

As always, you do not have to be a sailing champion to participate, nor do you have to have a planing hull or carbon sails, the VELA Cup is for everyone. Yes because, at the VELA Cup you don’t just win at sea, but also if you have a bit of luck, thanks to the many raffle prizes offered by partners Garmin, Veneziani, Leatherman, Plastimo, HiNelson and YachtIngBond.

VELAFestival village opens tomorrow at 12 noon

Accessorists, the best boatyards, sailing schools, charter operators and services are looking forward to welcoming you to the booths at the dock or on board to show you all the latest news and goodies on how to best equip your boat, advise you on buying a new boat, test out the most comfortable nautical clothing, find the right boat and vacation for the summer or where to learn the art of sailing.
