The second edition of the VELA Cup Brindisi at the Brindisi Marina was a success. Apulian sailors participated in the most fun regatta in the fleet! Accompanied by a beautiful sunny and windy weekend, the first taste of a summer that is just around the corner, 36 competitors out of 55 registered managed to complete the course within the time limit. In the evening, as per tradition, we celebrated the winners (and those who got lucky in the draw) all together with drinks and music in the square of the Brindisi Marina.
