Once again this year’s VELA Cup Brindisi at the Brindisi Marina was a real success. Despite the rain, 25 competitors out of 38 entries completed the course. A few wind shifts and an adrenaline-pumping start meant that all crews had a good time, both the most competitive and the first-time cruisers! 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.
