Special mention to Blu Fantàsia, Federico Gagliano’s First 40.7, which will have on board a special crew of teenagers attending competitive Optimist and Laser courses, accompanied by their federal instructor Mauro De Felice. An opportunity to strengthen team spirit and convey to the very young the values of the VELA Cup, which is not just a competition but a time to share the passion for sailing and the sea, combined with the desire to have fun all together.

Then there are owners who are big fans of the sea and sailing, such as those from the Classic Boats. In addition to competing for their category (Cruising or Sport Boat) and grouping (based on length) they also compete for the special prize dedicated to those boats over 25 years old. These include boats such as Idee Fixe, Roberto De Milito’s 1998 Dufour 32 Classic; Scacciacani, a mythical 1974 Dufour Arpège by Giulio Giovannetti; Elizabeth, a 1981 Taos Kelani 41 by Antonio Arcadio Antonaci; or Tridon, a 1986 Barberis Show 42 by Pietro Ivona. And don’t think they are not competitive! These include Flash, Andrea Milizia’s legendary Cookson Farr 39, winner of numerous IMS regattas worldwide, as well as winner of last year’s VELA Cup Brindisi.

“Flash” (formerly “Flash Gordon”), the first prototype of the FARR series with the same name and owner from which the highly successful Farr 40 series descended

Everyone can win at the VELA Cup!

The VELA Cup Brindisi, scheduled for Saturday, June 1, will last about 3-4 hours, and the race course will be set up on a coastal course.
